crossing a crevasse on a ladder
Crossing a deep crevasse on three ladders tied together
The snow sometimes freezes into ice and breaks apart like a very large crack in the street. When this happens you have to use a ladder to go across the crack. One of these cracks is called crevasse. If the crevasse is too wide to step across, then two or three ladders are tied together to make it long enough to safely cross.
