Navigation in the icefall

Navigation in the icefall

A climber on the normal route, walking on huge bridges in between crevasses. Altitude about 5850m.
Muztagh Ata's icefall has a reputation of being free from crevasse danger. Most of the crevasses are large, open and easy to spot but there are hidden ones as well.

Re: wow

Thanks!
Here's one photo with more back country.
I couldn't resist to have a look around in my photo collection for some more of that kind, so I submitted one more from the icfall.

Re: What an ambient!

Thanks turistoalpinista!
Muztagh Ata is one of the more famous mountains in Asia and therefore I thought it deserved a page with a lot of info.
