Great video for so many reasons. Hard / dangerous climbing- but presented in a gentle way with the highlighted problem being a mild viral illness! Even the sound track was mello. I wonder if some close ups of the alpine flowers would have also added (I'm really not joking)?

Also great background about the times they didn't go- the best decisions I'm sure are those sort- too dangerous- we won't go - even though we planned / came all this way. Sooo much better / wiser / intelligent (and heroic) to not get into a situation- have an epic / accident than to heroically recover from one.

I love watching Pete's videos. I think he's one of the most down-to-earth and entertaining climbers publishing content, and highly recommended anyone who enjoyed this go and seek out the Wide Boyz YouTube channel to find more adventurous mentalism like it.
