Thanks, and I absolutely agree. What primarily made this dangerous was taking out my DSLR and setting it up - took me a few minutes - although there were no other climbers and little icefall at that time. At any rate, I now have a little point in shoot for moments like these and I spend only a few seconds on quick shots in such places.
