Ben Briggs racing up the Kuffner Arete as the sun rises over the Grandes Jorasses in the distance...a pretty magical morning

Beautiful as usual Jon, but why is he racing? Or perhaps you are both very competetive!

Racing or trying to catch up? ;-)

Great photo, have a 5 - and I really like the detail of the sun on the snow in front of the climber.
