Repeat photo from the surface of Vadret Pers 1996 and 2012. The vertical camera position is not exactly identical since the glacier surface was lower in 2012. A rock wall has emerged from under the original small icefall. On the upper left is Piz Palü, above the right-centre is Piz Bernina and far right is Piz Morteratsch.
