Climb Island Peak: Island Peak Summit Day

Watch our March 2011 Island Peak expedition team on summit day. The clip begins at 'crampon point' and from here the team head slowly up the glacier negotiating several crevasses before reaching the main valley. At the end of the glacier / valley the team arrive at the base of the headwall and they climb this section to reach the main ridge to the summit. Some interesting footage along the narrow ridge as the team climb higher and finally reach the summit proper. The climb down takes almost as long as the trip up so we've kept it nice and short.
