what an incredible shot!
It's a good idea to turn around and look below your feet.

In principle I agree, one should turn around occasionally and look around. But for this shot, we didn't have to: we climbed Chopi via the normal route from the SW, not via this ridge. Too difficult for me.

Thanks Roberto. I know what you mean... When I'm in an exposed place, high up on a mountain , I can be really happy and totally at peace. Neither the altitude nor the exposure worries me at all. But just looking at pictures of other people on the edge of a steep drop sometimes makes me shudder at the thought that they might fall.
