A proper mini adventure

Well that's it for another SkiMo season - time to get back to normality.

Do not let this photo fool you, today was pure survival tactics.

The first sign was George's helmet getting whipped away with the wind.

The second sign was George's crampon self destructing at the very top of the Fiacaill Couloir.

Even if I had the biggest and best crampon repair kit in my rucksack - speaking a bit more than some metal cable ties, screws etc - there was absolutely no way that it was getting fixed en route.

For Bob & George, I think today will be one to be remembered.
