Franz Josef Glacier

Two days ago, I climbed a glacier.

The weather was spectacular, clear skies and no rain. One guide, two Czechs, two Dutch, two Swedes, four Poms (English), and me. At one point, I drank glacial water. We squeezed thru a cravasse whose walls were at least 4 metres hight. Another time, we had to shimmy thru a mousehole of ice to reach the rest of the trail. Eight hours later, we returned to basecamp. Wet socks can be changed, and sore legs heal after a few days.

I would do it all over again. Who's coming with me?
