Including the house in the lower left was great! It really conveys the size of the mountain.

Terveisin, Ansel

The building is the Refugio de Cayambe at 4500 metres. The summit is +1200 vertical metres more. We were there acclimatizing and went to practice our ice climbing skills to the icefall which can be seen right from the cliff on the left side of the photo.

By the way Ansel, I lost your email address, my computer broke and I didn't have a backup from my email setup.

Thanks JuancaQuesada. The ice fall was very steep and there's hardly room for errors. Hope your shoulder is ok by now.
