Everest Icefall, Nepal

This was the most dangerous place on our climb of Everest.  We were crossing a "bridge" of ice blocks jammed in the neck of a crevasse. Beneath was a huge cavern 30 feet deep. Later in the climb, the whole mass collapsed in the accident that killed climber and cameraman, Blair Griffiths.
