... bring myself to eat breakfast, only managing a couple of mouthfuls of bread and a corner of a cereal bar before meeting up with two other lunatics from our group keen to attempt climbing Mount Doom.

We decided not to climb it which was a shame, but it was far too late in the day and somebody had already been airlifted off due to a fall on the slopes! Passing the pyroclastic flows of mighty Mt Doom (which were bloody massive and extended miles down the mountain) we came across a woman sat down ...
