It's great photo ! What was happened with this guy ? Fallen to the crevasse and can we see the rescue on this picture ?
I can see that a double rope on his harness. Is that the rope to the flaschenzug ?

Would you like me to change the name to Crevasse Fall Simulation?

Yep, that title would be good. You are deceiving SPers by leaving "Crevasse Fall". If he would fall inside the crevasse he couldn't go out by his own. Probably he'd have died

??? I've fallen into a crevasse about this size before and I'm not dead. Isn't that what rope's for and why you learn these skills?

It's good that you are not dead after that fall. Sorry but I don't believe that the climber in the pic has fallen in such a crevasse. You were injured after the fall. Weren't you?

The description already says that. I only fell a few meters before the rope became taught although I would have obviously fallen a long way were I not roped. No injuries other than than to my pride. Bit better at identifying crevasses these days.

Anyway, I don't see a fall in the pic. You were not falling when the pic was taken

Hey Diego stop being a douchebag and read the comment with the photo that mentions its training. Also stop overthinking things and spend more time climbing....just saying!

I think it's a great photo, but I will agree with Diego on this one. The title makes me think something dramatic happened.

How some people have left silly comments on this photo.... also funny how most people easily ignore the details. Great photo though!

Yeah, I don't engage dramatic debates beyond the point of reason but I thought it was nice that some people stood up for me with their comments.
