/ epic self rescue after avalanche USA...
this is a year old but never heard of it, a mini Touching the Void. good effort guys.
Yeah, saw it last year. On a side note, it's how I found Broken Bells, Arcade Fire and the the XX; nice songs I reckon.
Good effort!! true grit.
A bit like Doug Scott's epic retreat from the Ogre with two broken legs accompanied by a badly concussed Chris Bonington.
Yup that's the one.
Having dislocated and broken my talus bone (at stanage) I can only imagine what that guy was going through. He must have balls of steel.
> Amazing determination.

Nothing at all like that I would say.
Scott's ordeal was mountaineering in it's finest sense. This is just cragging.
Daft comparison. If that's all you can offer I would sooner you stay quiet.
