only 3 for the picture but a 5 for the leaning tower of stratified ice - I find it hard to believe it hasn't fallen over.
Is it natural? and if so how was it made - I understand the layering but why as a square tower?

I agree with your rating, I only put it up for the ice.
It is natural, I can only assume that it has something to do with the fact that Peruvian glaciers are tropical (lots of snow, lots of melt) Why it is square - no idea except some sort of shading and/or influence of nearby rock

Thanks for that - assumed it was natural but it does have a slight man made look to it.
hope your route didn't have to go underneath the lean - that would scar me something silly
