Chillin on a Glacier, Chalten Argentina

Date of Events: 2/6/2009

Hiked for about three hours to a river.

Ziplined across to the other side and hiked some more (really steep) to get to the glacier.

Put on crampons (those spiky things that go over your shoes and stop you from sliding on ice) and made way to the glacier.

The glacier was melting and dirty, but still really cool.

We had lunch in between some iceberg looking things and after practiced a bit of ice climbing.

Then we did it all again.  Except in reverse.

12 hours and 35 km.

I was tired.
