The trail to sky pond was more like a small waterfall here!

Taylor Glacier is situated at the head of Loch Vale.
Dominic, Gary & Kevin starting up Taylor Glacier.
Dominic on the steepening glacier with Sky Pond below.
Kevin in a very deep runnel, probably the deepest one I've ever seen. I think it was created when pieces of the cornice above broke off and rolled down the glacier.
Kevin and Gary climbing Taylor Glacier.
Dominic approaching the top of the ever steepening glacier.
Kevin & Gary climbing high on Taylor Glacier.
Kevin approaching the steep exit at the top of the glacier.
Kevin on belay for the exit moves. The remnants of the cornice here get first sun hit and the snow was somewhat unsupportive.
Kevin preparing to make the final giant step.
