A Class Picture for the Ages

Nice picture, huh? But why are they all leaning to their right slightly? And what's with the ropes? It's because they're all high. It would help if you turned the picture the correct way up.

These 14 students at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts (Hes-so) Valais-Wallis campus climbed 2,400 meters (7,874 feet) up the mountain called Pierre Avoi in the Swiss Alps. If you think that's an awful lot of trouble to get a picture, you haven't seen the half of it. Watch the process they went through to make this photograph happen.

These young folks take mountain climbing seriously, except when they want to have fun. You can see more pictures here.  -via reddit
