The weather radar showed some rain coming towards us but we had ...

Perhaps this is an indication about how we smell... ? We reached the top in about 3 hours. I found this one of the easier cols - or maybe we're just getting more hardcore... ? After a champions lunch of muffins, Pringles, coke and coffee, it was time for the descent! This descent was quite unique, thanks to ...
