What a gnarly looking peak, so jagged and offensive. I can't imagine the stress of climbing under those massive seracs! Great pic!

What a classic shot! Tripper! Don't think I've ever seen such a clear image of this impossibly defiant peak. Much congrats.

I hear the South Face has never been climbed, and when looking at this photo I can see why. I gazed at the full size and could not find a single way up it that looked reasonable to a crazy climber. An absolutely incredible mountain right there, I some day would like to see it for myself. Thanks for sharing this on SP!
Cheers Josh Lewis.

... the swirls of merengue on my mom's lemon merengue pies! Your fabulous picture hits me on two very sentimental fronts. What a treat!
