or did i watch a different asgard project.
'The harsh conditions and incredibly steep and blank nature of the rock only allowed us to free half the route'. Even having the manliest man in Britain on board wouldn't have got the team out alive if they'd stayed long enough to free the whole tower. Too hard, too cold, and too late in the season.
Agreed and I started a thread about it last night.
I like to think that Leo Houlding and the team, would be in agreement with us too.
btw this thread IS an Outdoors Show advert - the "OI NEWS" bit (OI = Outdoors Industry) indicates that it's a kind of advertorial
I thought he had spoken ad nauseam about exactly that experience ever since it happened (he told me this himself - not because he wants to but because people keep on and on asking him!)
We apologise for any unintentional confusion caused, and we have amended our promotional materials for the show accordingly.
Thank you, The Outdoors Show.
Now I wonder if the first post in this thread can be amended accordingly, too.
