Risvolto di copertina:
Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. A serac (originally from Swiss French sérac, a type of ricotta-like whey cheese) is a block or column of ice formed by intersecting crevasses on a glacier. Often house-sized or larger, they are dangerous to mountaineers since they may topple with little warning. Even when stabilized by persistent cold weather, they can be an impediment to glacier travel. Seracs are found within an icefall, often in large numbers, or on ice faces on the lower edge of a hanging glacier. Examples of the latter in the Alps are found on the north-east face of Piz Roseg, the north face of the Dent d'Hérens and the north face of Lyskamm. They are a well-known obstacle on many of the world's highest mountains, in particular Kanchenjunga. The collapse of large seracs were responsible for at least 8 of the 11 deaths of the August 2008 K2 climbing accident on the world's second highest mountain, K2.
