you couldn't pay me to climb around in those things. Big Balls SA. I stand by my comment: haul ass over them.
Hahaha, I'm just saying you don't have to be doing 35. Under 20 will get you over most of the ones found in the lower 48, but every situation is different for sure. The bigger the gap the faster you probably want to go. Falling into one is certainly not something I would want to experience. Le suck...
This spring, on one of my summiting trips on Mt. Hood, I jumped this crevasse on the White River Glacier. It was about half this width at the time and the landing is about 3-4 feet lower than the takeoff. A person would have to be going retardedly slow to miss the landing. This crevasse opens up clear to ground in mid summer and is about 100 feet deep. I climbed down through it and came out in the bottom of White River canyon. I love climbing in these things in that eerie blue light!
This summer, I want explore the seracks on the Elliot Glacier over on the Cooper Spur side of Hood. Shredlife, I also want to utilize your expert photography skills and equipment. When this beastie is just the right width, I want a shot of the base of the Neversummer board I will be testing from you down in there a bit!
