Thank you!
Yes, this tour has been overhelming! Beautiful all these ice falls at the north side of the Grand Combin.
Best regards!

INSANE! I know extremely little about travel on that type terrain but I look at the area, especially above two right side climbers where they came down, and I get the serious willies! Or maybe is safer because it looks as if it has recently already let go?

Conditions were pretty good at this time, so the possibilty of avalanches was nearly minimized.
Well and the thing about the seracs, just take your heels and get up there quickly. Way better than through the Corridor-Route where ice constantly is falling from the seracs above.
