Everest North Face

This shot is from 2006.  It was taken at the top of the 2nd step at 8650 meters.  The traverse from the 2nd step to mushroom rock is one of the sketchiest parts of the route.  Sugar snow on tiny downsloping ledges with very old and tattered ropes.  The slabs of the upper north face look pretty mellow in this photo, but sure seem a lot steeper when your crampons are skidding around on the smooth rock at 28,000 ft.
