Kayaking and ice climbing

Went to visit the Serano glacier in the Benardo O'higgins national park with Jen and Liz. Bit of excitement when we were kayaking in lake in front if the glacier.

We were just landing the kayaks in the edge of the lake to go pyro the glacier when a large section of glacier fell into the lake causing a tidal wave to come across the lake. Our guide got soaked saving his kayak, I managed to grab mine and haul it further up the rocks to relative safety. All very exciting.

The ice climbing on the glacier was fairly tame but we got some good photos.

Saw a family of 5 condors soaring over the glacier which was pretty cool.
