Oh, that is sad. I was wondering about your caption.

a 5 for the sentiment

Very sad news. Words are insufficient.

So sad, but perhaps a fitting tribute to a man who enjoyed life to the full, that might slightly ease the pain of those he leaves behind. Rest easy, Ernie.

Even without the terrible circunstances it's still a very striking photo image. Is that the Baltoro Glacier in the background?

Sean that is mostly the Godwin-Austen glacier but you can see a bit of the Baltoro from the 90 bend. That bend is basically Concordia and in front of that Mitre Peak.
