/ Pic 'n' Mix FA video
Scraping about for holds, poor soft snow placements as you top out screaming at your mate for more slack, but he can't hear you cos its blowing a hoolie on the plateau. Its like it really is!! Great wee vid..
I'm never ever going to climb grade IX, but everyone can relate to the screaming for slack, the howling gale, and then flopping onto the plateau in a shaken mess.
