Moon over Chachani, early in the morning

The true summit is to the left of this picture, and we're not far away anymore at this point, where we are passing a couple of rock formations. We don't have to climb any of them, we just keep to the snow. And, by the way, this photo gives a good impression of the steepness: as you can see, it's easy. You'll need crampons in these conditions, but an ice axe is optional, assuming you know how to self-arrest without it on a gentle slope.
