Great action shot. Looks like your getting ready to take a leap.
haha, yeah that would be a crazy idea. I think i was more in the "ready for anything" position
nice composition, great photo!
that mountain just gives away amzing shots
What an adventure!
Beautiful shot that really captures the "pucker factor" of the descent.
and I was very happy to see it get "Front Page"
I guess a rope would have been more or less useless there.
Note: I think that the pic caption in your profile page is wrong
Straight ahead is Huacaran Norte over 6600m and to the left is Huascaran Sur. We believed that the horizon on the right was the Pacific Ocean, though we could see more clealy from earlier in the mroning at sunrise. Quite the distance and vertical though at over 6000m!
If you're looking north to the massive summits of Huascaran then the Pacific Ocean would be to your left, to the west. A forgiveable oversight, as hypoxia sets in at the impressive altitude you earned the old fashioned way. Impressive work, stunning foto. Alibedes all around.
Actually Huascaran Norte is straight West of Chopi and the ocean is visible over its shoulder. You can see this on Google Earth quite clearly. I dont know if that is exactly what you see in this photo. It may be a layer of stratus clouds over the ocean but earlier in the morning we could almost certainly see the Pacific!
This is a badass photo. Great action shot.
Great shot, it mean the mountain action...
Wow..really a stunning photo!
heart rate up just looking at the pic!
Can't imagine what it was like descending that thing unroped.
