Deze foto is gemaakt tijdens de derde Zuid Nieuw-Guinea Expeditie van 1912-1913. We zien P.F. Hubrecht en Dayak-dragers op de sneeuwhelling naar de top van de ca. 4700 meter hoge Wilhelmina-top op 21 februari 1913.

'The Dayak were exuberant with joy and threw snowballs at each other... the Kajans asked if they could take some snow to headman Bang Kwin, who had stayed behind in Kloofbivak, and were quite upset when we demonstrated that this would not be possible' (Franssen Herderschee)
