Rainier 2000; Dima Eremin' Group
Approach to Liberty Ridge - Carbon Glacier
Just strarted on Carbo Glacier in the morning of 29th
There were some really impressive crevasses and it wasn't obvious what
was the best way around them
Dima is jumping across a crevasse
It's sa pity that packs can not jump by themselves...
Now we have jump into the crevasse and ascend on the other side
Olya is leading across the "nose" - broken snow bridge
She had to downclimb, then graceful step to the left, couple of steps ua
and she's putting a picket on the other side...
Sasha decided to minimize his potential energy and was sliding on his butt for a while
Taking packs across the crevasse
Is it going to make it here or not...?
Ice/snow fall on the Willis Wall
Ilya just got on top
Dima was going last cleaning up the route
Sasha's going across a suspicious snowbridge
Dima inside the glacier
Out goal is close...
Those rocks in front of us - beginning of the Liberty Ridge
Dima led the way and we're ascending on fixed rope onto the Liberty
Carbon is behind us...
