Mountain Tips

Tip of the day: travel around with girls – they have plasters, pharmaceuticals, ointments, and cheese sandwiches

Tip of yesterday: travel with at least one boy to fix heaters and things.

Achievement of the day: got up and down a 4000 metre mountain in under fourteen hours, with a stinking cold, and no sleep at the halfway shed due to aching sinuses and the general lack of air. And the crazy idea that setting of for the final ascent at 3am was smart. Scrabbling up with ropes and three torches between the four of us. But spending about 90 freezing seconds at the top watching the sunrise was worth it. Then back to sea level and piping hot KK.
