Re: Walking an icy tightrope

is this the "bergschrund" or just your average hole in the ice. i guess i will take a ladder when i go there

Re: Walking an icy tightrope

This is not a bergschrund, but an average crevasse on the normal route. If you not hurry you may miss this exciting crossing because I think this bridge won't survive this summer. Otherwise at least hundred people (ore more) could crossed this bridge in this summer so we did not looked for a better alternative. There are many more bigger crevasses on the way but this was from the most interesting ones.

Re: Walking an icy tightrope

Shouldn't the rope be tied to your harness when crossing that crack? It seems that it comes from the backpack.

Re: Walking an icy tightrope

Of course the rope was tied into the harness but you're right it seems if it would come from the backpack.
