What a great action shot in amazing setting, easily finds its place among the best glacier shots I've seen!

Yeah, with the impossibly contorted figure, and elongated hat, it looks like Thing 1 from a Dr. Seuss novel.

Thanks! It is on the big serac just in the middle of the Ushba Plateau where we normally place our last camp. Classic Route from Russian Side (North)

Looks like there are some tough overhangs to get over.

Thanks a lot for your comment! It really was quite overhanging climb. Actually the last one - snow cornice - was impossible to climb...
