With absolutely no experience of altitude and this being a new experience my entrance to the challenge some what blind and as a novice turned out to work in my favour along with lady luck!! It was singly the most significant point and still is in my humbled life on this planet.The feeling was spectacular only to be beaten by the birth of my daughter. a good tip in any organised expedition is to take the summit assault from the front and try to be in the first group. This will ensure a better start on the scree when the ground is still relatively solid.No one in the trailing groups had a good time on the disturbed terrain.
