So, after climbing up more than 150m of the ice wall we get to the ridge, and still we must continue… UP! One single safety line and steady feet between me and the ‘Slide of Death’ down the slopes of Island Peak.

    this is a great journey you’ve done. It’s so cool to follow through your pics. you must have had good gloves that you could wear to take these pics all the way. looks icy on the left and fresh on the right. i know which way i’d prefer to go :)
