Fantastic

What a great action shot in amazing setting, easily finds its place among the best glacier shots I've seen!

Re: Fantastic

Yeah, with the impossibly contorted figure, and elongated hat, it looks like Thing 1 from a Dr. Seuss novel.

Re: Freakin' awesome

Thanks! It is on the big serac just in the middle of the Ushba Plateau where we normally place our last camp. Classic Route from Russian Side (North)

Re: awesome pic

Thanks a lot for your comment! It really was quite overhanging climb. Actually the last one - snow cornice - was impossible to climb...
