On the way up, a man and his family said, “You’re almost there. But don’t go on the ice. We slipped and it was nearly fatal.”
This would be why all the people on the ice field in this photo are roped up and wearing crampons. It’s the way to Camp Muir and the summit. You don’t walk out there in shorts and hiking boots.

If you like near death experienced, backpack into Lake of the Clouds in the Bob Marshall Wilderness in Montana. Take an emergency radio.
