Mishell hikes along the Froze-To-Death Plateau on our approach to base camp. To get an idea of the distance, note the tiny dots/hikers in the very center of the photo....far away.

Look at the weight Mishel is carrying! Was Martin carrying anything? Congrats to you all on your successful climb.

I had the tent, stove, fuel, pots and pans, and rack. That was heavy too! Stop making fun of me.

If my memory is good, seems like you guys checked and her pack was heavier. Of course, it didn't help that she picked up every rock on the plateau to add to her rock collection.

Of cource your memory is good. It was a good 5 to 7 pounds heavier than mine, even though I had most of the group gear. What did she have in there anyways??? Oh, that's right. Good food! Those cucumbers and tomatoes were scrumptious.

I forgot about all the vegetables. They were almost as useful and heavy as the rocks and with zero calories. I hope they were good. You guys must have just sat around eating all day while we were scratching out a route on the peak.

That's one thing that struck me about this plateau: what looks like it'll take 10 minutes to cross instead takes 40 minutes of steady travel. Plus, as I recall, there are so many dips, rocks, and talusy stream beds in the ground that you have to keep your eyes down to see where you're stepping. In this regard, the Froze-to-Death Plateau was an annoying place for me to hike. The views were outstanding but the hiking itself was less than outstanding. Yeah, I know, what a whiner I am!

looks like a pretty unique place. Including the hikers in the distance really conveys the scale of it nicely.
