Hello folks, I was looking for the photo of that crazy cat on the end of a cornice on the Ben.
Anyone oblige?

Many thanks!

If you want to use it, you should probably do better than those people on facebook, and credit the guy who took it, Henning Wackerhage. He's registered on here.

Not sure what you mean by that. Maybe I should just reply:

erm... good manners?

Can I show it to my mate?

Not my place to say. Ask Henning :-)

That's crazy!

Maybe there's a rope going along the floor you can't see, up (the far side of his body) to his harness. Surely anyone who's gone to the effort of doing something that requires a helmet, wouldn't stand so far over on a cornice?

In reply to Richard Carter:

No, there was no rope. Henning thinks the man in question had probably just soloed something desperate. So the guy probably felt relatively safe peering over the edge of Observatory Gully.

Well that's a bit stomach churning! :-P

In reply to Richard Carter:

Realistically, he was quite safe. It was a pretty cold day.

Not that I'd do it myself, or let my kids do it :-)

He deserves a red bull hat for that

Saw a guy doing something very similar on the northern edge of Easy Gulley on Aonach Mor during the 'meet formerly known as the UKC Glencoe picnic' this year... Scared the willies out of me...

Then there was the guy apparently digging a snow test pit in a rather large crack on the edge...
