As you may know, this is a crevasse. While hiking on the Franz-Josef Glacier, I nearly fell into one! Our group was walking single file just a meter or so from a crevasse like this one on either side of us. My right crampon got caught on my left pantleg, and as I fell to the ice, I grabbed onto the girl (Trisha) in front of me. If she wasn't there, I might not be here. I still have the jeans with that souvenir of a tear on the left pantleg.
