Impassable DC route
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.

Never been up that high, but it looks gnarly.

Thanks for scouting it out.

The size and number of the crevasses later in the season on the Emmons is pretty amazing; definitely a neat place to look around and worth the effort to get up there.
