A Frozen Morning - Laguna Torre

A Frozen Morning - Laguna Torre

On 5 May 2016, I departed from El Chalten at 5:00am, I hiked in the darkness with a full load of climb backpack (25 kg) - my journey of climbing to Glacier Torre began. I arrived at Laguna Torre at 7:40am and waited for my climb companion Andy.

This image was taken during my waiting for Andy's arrival. Surprisingly, when I got there, I found Laguna Torre was completely frozen - that was very different from what I saw 2 weeks ago. I could see so many icy blocks everywhere along the edge of the lake. This image captured an amazing scene during the sunrise moment.
