Thanks! I made this for a class I'm voluntarily teaching for a local outdoor group, and realized that it is something SPers might light to see as well.
good job, Marsupial! just a thunk; this is harder, but maybe expand on the locating & identifying crevasses (when covered in snow/ice) - this is a fine art and can be dang near impossible in many conditions, but there can be subtle clues (besides location in regards to assumed areas of stress) that would make a great add to the article!
Thanks! I had an aside about that in the original writing. I'll incorporate it later tonight. Though I think I only have 1 photograph that is illustrative of crevasse signs . . .
excellent and informative article. Excellent diagrams, text and related photos.
Thank you for sharing your vast knowledge with the rest of us.
Thanks! I love sharing, and it's always nice to hear what people appreciate.
I must take time to read it carefully... but it looks very very interesting...
glaciers for dummies! like me . . . thanks
heheh, happy to help :-)
Comprehensive. Something to refer to from time to time.
I'm glad you find it helpful.
one of the most informative and best illustrated articles on Summit Post. Well done.
I agree 100%, excellent article. Time and effort well-spent!! Thanks a lot.

Very nice article. I noticed from your profile photo you climb with Natstia too!
Yep! Did 3 climbs on Rainier with her.
Have you been getting out again lately?
I've had to take some time off due to health problems so no climbing of late. I just finished a course of drugs that will hopefully get things under control and me back in the hills. I have started working out again this week, albeit very easy workouts.
As a geologist, I was desperately looking for a mistake to pounce on or something obvious you overlooked. Couldn't find it...nice work.
