Nice! It looks like a big, strange, fortress.

Cheers,

Actually it´s become a fortress, because the ice vannished. Once upon a time ago the ice was about 1500meters strong up to the end of the bright granit you can see. Only the black "cuernos" were peaking out of the glacier those days in the far past. It´s incredible what power nature provides.
