Walking through the icefall. How many climbers can you see?
Climbing through the ice fall can be very dangerous. The ice moves about 3 feet every day and sometimes falls on top of another piece. I walked through holes in the ice that looked like doors in a house. The ice does not melt in the bright sunlight because it is so cold - even in the middle of the day.
