climbing in the Khumbu Icefall
Rob climbing in the icefall. See his poles in his pack?

This is a picture of my teammate Rob. He is climbing the icefall. You can see that he is holding onto a rope. The ropes are tied to ice screws that go deep into the ice. If you fall, the rope will keep you from falling too far down the icefall.
