The glacier on the east face of Ausangate

Just visible on the left is part of the steep headwall, which is almost 200m high. At the bottom, it's a bit less steep, but most of it is like this.

Today was more or less a rest day. We gathered our gear from the wall after leaving a lot of it yesterday evening, and Iván, our guide, would continue to prepare the belay stations for our second summit attempt tomorrow.

Re: Nice

Thanks.

When the sun drives away the cold, it's a great place to be and we had plenty of time to enjoy all the scenery today. I really like all these formations. Danger and beauty combined.
