10 10 Jerome Ryan Climbing Down East Col  [10 of 26]


Finally it was my turn to grab the fixed rope and descend the 125m 40-45 degree snow and rock face. Palde and Pemba Rinjii cut steps for me to make it easier and safer. The only real danger was falling rocks and ice kicked loose by the other groupís porters descending at the same time.
