Crevasse between Moncorve and Gran Paradiso glaciers

The route traverses right to avoid the crevasse between the Moncorvé and Gran Paradiso glaciers and then follows the line of rocky outcrops to the summit. It was about here the going got tough due to the altitude (about 3800 m).

The guy in front was going at about the same pace as me. He would stop for a breather and I would overtake him, and then he would overtake me when I also decided to 'take in the scenery'.
