We were 2 fit guys in our mid twenties who had two days of pure hell!!!! The highest mountain one of us had climbed before was Snowdon and neither of us had any climbing experience. We appreciate that to experienced climbers this is a walk in the park. But I will forever look back at the time when I lay on the mountain side,10m from the top, wanting but failing to cry as I couldn't breath!!
