Glissading Death Below Aasgard Pass

A 19-year-old man glissaded into a hole in the snowfield below Aasgard Pass on June 4. This hole, which opens in the spring but is hidden from above, has been the scene of several glissading fatalities. Episode 25 of the Sharp End podcast features an interview with another climber who fell into the same hole but survived.
