Descending Misti
Very close to the summit. The snow is both being melted away by the strong sun and eroded by all the climbers going up and down here every day. Today, eight tourists and two guides made it. A bit further, the last ones are still struggling to get there, but it's only a matter of minutes now.

The third guide waited a few hundred meters lower, with those that had to give up.
