Impassable DC route

Evidence of why RMI removed the ladders spanning the crevasses on the upper section of the DC route in late-July of 2007. The new route lost about 700' of elevation and dipped below the DC and onto the Emmons. The new route was quite a bit longer because of the elevation loss (700' each way) and the zig-zagging through the many crevasses on the Emmons.

Amazing

Never been up that high, but it looks gnarly.

Thanks for scouting it out.
cheers

Re: Amazing

The size and number of the crevasses later in the season on the Emmons is pretty amazing; definitely a neat place to look around and worth the effort to get up there.
