A friend and I recently returned from a climbing expedition to the Kamchatka Peninsula, Russia, where we summited two volcanoes as well as carrying out some research on the local ash-covered glaciers. This series will show just a small glimpse of what we got up to, and also hopefully highlight the stunning beauty of Kamchatka.

While at our top camp, Colin planned to carry out some surface mapping of the Bogdanovitch Glacier. The weather however had other ideas, and for much of the afternoon we were surrounded by cloud. Wandering around the ridge we were on we came across this sheer drop, and through breaks in the cloud could see down to the valley bottom far below.
