We minimized overhead hazard by staying far climbers right along the trim line to 1800m when we entered the trees between the north and south path, which are are well spaced and make for easy skinning with no overhead hazard rather than staying in the path. We had numerous whumpfs and shooting cracks and were cautious on any steep terrain, even below tree line.
