Serac in the Khumbu Icefall
A big piece of ice called a serac. Can you see the rope?

Because the ice is falling downhill, it sometimes sticks straight up in the air when it hits another piece of ice. The ice is very big, sometimes as big as a house. I had to walk very fast when I passed by one of these big ice blocks because they can fall over at anytime and badly hurt me.
