"Better than a theme park but not as safe" quipped intrepid mountaineer Lorenzo Gariano in his most recent phone message from the shadow of Everest. He and his small party had just returned from a traverse of the Khumbu Icefall - basically a live, moving glacier whose gaping cravasses have to be negotiated with ladders (see photo) - en route to Camps 1 and 2. The team delivered supplies to Camp 2 which will be used in the ascent of Lhotse.
