Photographer's Note

This view was shot during an expedition to the Huascaran (6870 m), the highest summit of the White Cordillera, in Peru.

The three climbers were just below the Garganta, at 5900 m, a key point of the ascent, where the glacier has many crevasses and is really dangerous. On the left, the highest point is the summit of one of the two summits of the Huascaran (north and south, almost the same height).
