Looks awful

Is that a fixed line?

Re: Looks awful

No, that's actually our rope. This shot was taken on our descent of Denali Pass where there are fixed anchors but this spot is just below the section where the fixed anchors start. It was about 8:00 PM, snowing heavily, windy and I just wanted to get out of there since this area is avalanche prone. I was fixing an anchor at the time as the climber in blue had stumbled and arrested his fall. We couldn't see the trail and were trying to pass the bergshrund on the right on our way back to camp.
