Hi only me again, I wrote earlier but just thourght I would post a different website containing pictures of my frostbitten toes as an indication of what the extreme cold at the top can do. These photos persuaded my insurance company (The BMC- The best in the world, which can be found at www.thebmc.co.uk) to fly me home early for treatment here in the UK, in collaberation with Chamonix, the world leaders for frostbite.
I am very greatful for all their help.
P.S a week after my Summit, the first Domestic dog climbed to the top with 2 climbers. The dog had special shoes, a jacket, and sunglasses. Funny enough one of the climbers also suffered from mild frostbite.
