Race Face Single Ring Narrow/Wide - initial impressions

Are the XX1 style narrow/wide chainrings worth the money?
The answer pretty much comes down to their ability to keep the chain from falling off, when running without a chainguide.
I thought it might be interesting to isolate the narrow/wide effect, too see what it really does.

 Narrow/wide and standard version of the Race Face Single Ring.

I've been riding a standard Race Face 34T Single Ring since spring, and have so far put 1400 km on it.
Today I changed to the 34T Narrow/Wide version of the Race Face Single Ring.

Moroccan climbing

Back in the spring of 2010 Jonathan Mathiesen, Jens Arne and I wen't to the Atlas Mountains of Morocco for some african skialpinism.
I've since had 900+ photos that I want'ed to get sorted and perhaps share a few of.
Anyways now it's autumn '13 and the Danish Climbing Federation are organizing a climbing trip to Tafroute in Morocco, so what better reason to put of some pictures.
This first post from our trip three years ago, is primarily climbing orientated. Later post can cover skiing and culture.

Trekking in from Imlil. 1600 vertical meters + food and gear for two weeks = mule - good idea.
