/ 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.
It's taken from hard xs, a few years old now but well worth buying:
yeah not seen that before, defo worth a watch.
ah okay thanks, had never come across it before
