Well done you little ice queens. Wicked line and you deserve it after last years camping trip. love frankie xxx
Good to see Bubbs taking care of the approach pitches so Hamish could be warmed up for the steep bit.
Looks cool guys!
What would have happened had they not bumped into the priest?
I wouldn't advice going anywhere near it!
But since you asked we took:
2 60 metre 8mm ropes
6 cams up to 3.5"
1 set of wires
Apart from that we each carried 2 litres of water, Cliff Bars and Gels, a belay jacket, spare gloves and mitts and a head torch.
Well played. Would love to do some of the stuff you chaps are doing.
Nice one bubbles - who would have thought the hotel bathroom was the most dangerous part of the expedition ;)
Not bad after having your Chamonix season castrated ;-)
Nice one guys. Tom do you know how the Warwick guys got on with their trip out there?
Good work lads - not the hardest new route in the world this year but it's inspirational that 2 young lads got of their asses and did something like this.
Cheers Jack, I forgot about those guys until I saw this.
Nice job guys. That picture of Hamish with the donkey is priceless! Tell him Ryan from North Carolina/Thailand says hello and well done!
