  • Date(s) climbed: 31st October 1997 solo, after Mark and Bear, below...

Went on that trip (H Todd-led) for my 50th birthday.(A paid for by my insurance-driven beloved...) Site of Camp 1 in itself worth the effort. I couldn't hack the climbing pace of the younger crowd - I bivvied at Camp 2 when they surged on to C3. It snowed. I met them at C3 after they returned from summit, next day. Following day I 'sillily' soloed... As mentioned - check all ropes! I took a tumble on descent when a rope parted.
