My face is on fire you crazy mountain
Photoshop warning, please proceed.... A burned in Huascaran coming outta the haze from the rooftop of my hotel in Huarez in 1991. Shows how close the peak is away from the main climbers hub-Huarez. After trying to go up the west face route, we slept before Gargantua shy of about 1/2hrs walk so we slept under some big seracs near the end of the icefall and got pummeled throught the night of things going bump, then spraying debris onto us. Our tent was flat to our face for about 12 hours, just say we were in uttter horror. My face burned bad and peeled bad from the intensive heat radiating off the glacier. It's 2005 and I am still alive though!
