Some pictures from Anders' first rotation

Here are a few pictures from Anders and his teammates' first rotation up to Camp Two:

Here Anders puts tension on the two safety ropes as Geoff crosses a crevasse on one of the many ladders on the route:

John crossing a double ladder:

These are the "bread loaves" that stretch for about a mile before the team's arrival at Camp One.  to get past these, the team has to climb down and up about 40 feet.  Very challenging:

More of the bread loaves with the Lhotse Face leading to Camp three in the distance:
