Mountaineers climbing Mont Blanc - French Alps

Look closely to see 2 groups of mountaineers climbing this glacier, one group near the bottom of the photo, and the other near the top. The climbers in the photo help give a sense of the size of the surrounding crevices and fissures. The photo is zoomed in on a small part of Mont Blanc; the hikers still have a long way to go to the top. Most likely they started from Cosmiques Refuge, the base camp near the top of the Mont Blanc cable car which I mentioned in my previous photo.
