Impassable DC route
|[ Sizes: Orig | Large | Med | Small | Thumb ]|
Evidence of why RMI removed the ladders spanning the crevasses on the upper section of the DC route in late-July of 2007. The new route lost about 700' of elevation and dipped below the DC and onto the Emmons. The new route was quite a bit longer because of the elevation loss (700' each way) and the zig-zagging through the many crevasses on the Emmons.
