Mons–Lyell–Icefall Ski Traverse: April 10–17, 2016


Icefall Peak from summit of Orbit Peak. This is a vertical panorama made from three images and shows the famous crevasse area (below triangular rock just above center) and some of our team’s ski tracks on the steep Diamond Spur (just above the triangular rock). The crevasse area below the triangular rock is always interesting; close-up on right.
