Looking Back: Begguya Expedition

The knife edge ridge was at our last camp at 10,300 feet. It was a spectacular view with much of the ridge like this for the next day, had we been able to continue. Between that ridge and our tent I fell into a large crevasse 20 feet from camp, catching myself on the lip with my upper body.

It was sobering reminder to never let your guard down even on a ridge where your would think is free of crevasses. Though not frequent, crevasses can form on some mountain ridges due to the vast amount of snow in the Alaskan range. Image: Chris Worlow
