This past weekend, I had a bit of a play with the hand-held pixel-shift function.

Mount Ngauruhoe.

Pretty cool MarkII.

I read this about the mountain:

QuoteQuote:
In 1974, as part of a promotional campaign for his sponsor Mot & Chandon, champion skier Jean-Claude Killy was filmed skiing down the previously unskied eastern slope of the mountain. The average slope on this side of the volcano is 35 degrees, and Killy was caught on radar skiing more than 100 miles per hour. As he fell on the first run, he did the descent twice
100 miles per hour.

Awesome.

I've been as high as 72.

What a rush!

Yikes! That's impressive. Did they say how he got to the top? In summer, it's climbable, but in winter it would be near impossible. Did they helicopter him to the top?
Here's the East side - which would be the side he would have skid down.

It didn't say, only that he made two attempts.

It's a big mountain, and there's no stopping halfway!
