This photo was taken on July 24, 1960 at 10:40AM by Bradford Washburn, out of a Super Cub 150 airplane on ski wheels, flying out of the little airport at Belp, near Berne, Switzerland. It was taken with a Fairchild K-6 aerial camera, at 1/225th @ f5.6 with a G (orange)filter, just after several days of heavy fresh snowfall through which the climbers were wallowing. Look carefully to see the footsteps of two other parties which climbed this ridge before the storm, still clearly visible behind this group of climbers.
