|I get to go first as I'm the 'youngest'!|

|Me leading up the crux pitch. Bit of everything further up!|
Pffftt!! It was a complete body workout, a fight for survival, a swim, a wade, a thrutch, a scratch, a hook, a pull up, several more pull ups, a squeeze, a scream, a cry, a wimper, a snotty sniff and a bloody cold ordeal! Everything was hard as we had alot of snow clearing to do. Progress was slow for Donald, Guy and I (yes another Guy!), body temperatures plummeted as we waited on belays, limbs didn't function well after been threaded with strands of sub zero temperatures. On member of the team said we should ware soft shells but I'm not going to name names...!

|Nice to be back in the sun|
With the forecast for more snow and only short weather windows we decided to head out and go sport climbing. Next stop Ceuse!
|Happy to be at the top|
