The snowbridge under Larry appears at first glance to be a reasonable size, but in fact, Nearly all the snow in this picture is part of the bridge. The major fracture 20 feet behind Larry is where this huge slab broke from the top edge of the glacier to bridge the broad, seemingly bottomless moat between the ice and rock. It appeared to be exactly what we needed to reach the base of the Tower.
