Where The World Ends

Uploaded by: thunderweather

Sunday May 12, 2013

Sierra Nevada, CA

Caption: This is the view north from the summit of Mt. Langley (14,026 ft) via the Northeast Couloir after a very nice 2-day climb. I woke up at 1:30 am at camp on day 2 in order to climb to the summit at sunrise. For many hours, it was me alone in the couloir in pitch black, listening to the steady crunching sounds as my ice axe and crampons came in contact with the ice. It was an awesome feeling.

Thank you for taking us all with you on these incredible journeys. This is fantastic! Your comments really add to the image. Climbing ice for hours in the dark...in May, no less. Sounds incredibly dangerous, but the reward...these gorgeous images are just a pale echo of what you must have really seen and experienced, being there.

Awesome view. In addition to its natural beauty and how it is captured with the morning light - it has a rare quality of only being seen by a select few. Thanks for sharing your efforts with the rest of us.
