In reply to UKC News: 'Unobtanium'? I just saw a documentary about mining that stuff in the jungles of Pandora. It didn't look very environmentally friendly to me so I certainly won't be using this facility.

Is that with the full Scottish breakfast? I heard the deep-fried croissant with Irn-Bru conserve is a must...

In reply to Dr Toph: Sorry but I dont understand what you mean. I take it from your reply that its a private hut and you can not stay there. Is that true.

In reply to UKC News: I think the stag parties is a great idea! The next step would be to put a Via Ferrata on Tower Ridge, that would be class!!

Unobtanium, sounds like it's made out of the same stuff as the confirmation tickets to stop there, well at least that's another 18 bearded elitist climbers that can fit in, absolute bollocks about opening it up to other mountain users, can you imagine the beardies sharing the hut with other mountain users?????? no chance!!!!!!!! It will be reserved for the same bunch of junkies that have been using it for the last 20 years, they will just be able to get in more often.

'Used to be uptight' it says in your profile, or something along those lines. Not sure about that like. Gullible maybe? :o)

(BTW, I'm neither elite, bearded or use drugs, yet I stayed there last year on a standard booking.....)

Well wouldn't want to break tradition, every year it gets me, i think it was the via ferrata on Crib Goch that got me last year!!!!!! Good excuse for a well overdue rant anyways.
