How can you manage to take such clear & distinct shots when you also have to climb in such precarious way?

Thank you Hermetic, Vinathorat, Bhaswaran, Uttam, Sagarneel, Theyyam, Akarn, Michelli & Nick. Bhawaran - and I envy your photographic skills ... I always wonder how you can turn simple looking thing into a great picture. Akarn - Usually when one climber climbs other watch him or belay him ... so you can take pic at that time. This was the last major obstacle on way to summit ... many earlier expeditions have failed at this point. After this route opening only summit team proceeded further (I was in support team for this expedition:() Summit is another 7-8 hour walk from here (but only 200-300 M higher than this point) .After this wall there's bergschrund (i.e. series of crevasses at the upper end of a mountain) & then summit at dangerous inclination of 70*-75*.
