Great picture, but unfortunately, the Diamond Glacier at the head of the Diamond Couloir is now no more than a patch of snow. Gone too is the ice cave with the curtain of icicles, through which the "Ice Window" for the classic "Ice Window Route" was cut by P. Snyder, Y. Laulan and B. LeDain in 1974.
(If you know where to look, the ice curtain is still visible in this photograph, so I assume this was taken in the eighties?)
