This is from last year’s trekking trip in the Everest region of Nepal where we had to cross the 5845 m high Amphulapcha pass. The ascend on the south side that involves climbing steep seracs was easy compared to the descend on the north side. There everybody had to rappel a few rope lengths. Easy for us “tourists” but quite a feat for our heavily laden porters!
