One of the seven

It almost went terribly wrong. We followed the track up from Base Camp, as we had seen many before us doing, and the track led up the loose moraine slopes above the Relinchos Glacier. I had a very bad feeling when we climbed up the moraine, but the track was right there. Still. Suddenly the slope collapsed under my feet, and I tore along to the side to avoid being caught by the vortex of rocks now tumbling down towards the glacier. Luckily the slide did not spread further under us, and when we with the utmost caution had sneaked back across the fresh scar in the slope, we agreed that probably we should better find another way up.
