Crevasses Near the Sharkfin in Summer # 14147

Below is a description of the photograph you were looking for, and the circumstances surrounding the photo.
Date: 2009.08.30
Vantage Point: From above the flats, most of the way up the "dome" south of the Sharkfin

Caption: VOC rope teams navigating the crevassed section of the Neve, the Sharkfin visible at far left

PhotoDescr: Taken as part of a VOC summer Neve crossing. After getting stumped by the crevasses along the flats I attempted to take the "high road" around the Sharkfin, but was stopped by continuous crevasses as wide as streets. Did give a good vantage point for this photo. Roland's rope team, investigating the mess at photo left, can barely been seen making it through.
