Climbing the Summit Pyramid, Chopicalqui

My friend Derek traversing below the steep icy face of the summit pyramid on Chopicalqui in inclement weather. The route traveled is not as steep as it appears in this picture, but it was pretty scary nonetheless! Sorry about the dark vignetting on this image - I had to adjust the contrast in this picture quite a bit to show the details, as it was taken in very low light in a storm.

An Understatement

"Pretty scary nonetheless" is an understatement--at least to me. I'd be scared .. witless. :-) Great photo that must capture the essence of your experience.

Re: An Understatement

No doubt. Looks pretty intense to me, too.
