"Ice always reminds you to be careful. Even walking in crampons can be tricky—step on a rope and the metal teeth could cut clean through it. I climbed, rope-less, into an ice cave to get this shot of Jared scrambling across cauliflower-shaped formations. One wrong move and I could have slipped twenty feet to the creek below. Yet what I was doing was nothing compared to Jared, who was free-climbing some 40 feet [12 meters] above the bottom of the gorge, on a pillar held to the rock by nothing more than gleaming frozen water."
