I'm not sure what's worse the jumper or being in some way responsible for Never Ending Story ;0)

Brilliant result Gordon and a very impressive CV.

In reply to UKC News: Congratulations Gordon! A must read now.
Incidently they had Andy McNab in the Mail supplement today choosing favourite things, and he included 'Touching the Void'! Another plug for mountaineering literature.

Yeah, but with Fiva one can totally identify with it! I'm sure it's only a matter of luck that I didn't have a similar epic at some point.
It's great to see its well deserved positive reception.
