Absolutely terrific photograph. It superbly captures the arduousness of climbing. The blowing snow is so integral to the shot.

@mo.langel: faut parfois ne pas hesiter a sortir l'appareil...... les qulques photos m'a demander un bon "sechage" de l'appareil.... pas facile de decider a sortir l'appareil dans une pente sommitale avec ce vent et "du gaz" (du vide) en dessous.....
