glacial sun

after finishing the first day's hiking in torres del paine we set up the tent and then walked out to this look out point to have our dinner. that consisted of cheese and salami sandwiches, which we had already eaten that day for breakfast and lunch. while the food was less then spectacular the opposite was true of the vista. the sun was setting behind glacier grey and the vantage point was fantastic. upon polishing off our food we saw a guy seemingly walk back from the foot of the glacier, which inspired us to make a similar journey. it was fairly treacherous on the way down. there were a lot of steep sections where you had to shuffle on your arse, and also a lot of loose rocks that meant that losing your footing was not so much a possibility but a certainty. after making it about 80% of the way there it became obvious that the final descent was the wrong side of foolish. with the sun pretty much set we were also running out of light and didn't fancy a climb back up in the dark. and it was a climb in every sense of the word, there were more than a few moments where my foot slipped and i was just hanging on by one hand as big rocks fell and violently crashed on the ground below. it was tough work, not least because the afternoon's 15km had drained most of my energy, but we finally made it back safe to the sunless picnic spot.
