Liberty Ridge Steep Ice High up
Photo taken on the obvious steep headwall at approximately 12,000-13,000 feet on Liberty Ridge. We experienced a lot of good blue ice up there. Some was covered with a thin layer of sastrugi (wind-packed snow), approximately 2-3 inches. Good ice underneath. This was probably the best climbing on the route. Alpine ice cruising! Climber is Jim Johnson. Photo by Jason Cronk, 2002.
