but it's between Queenstown and Franz Josef in NZ
see how terrifying it looks:
then I feel sorry for you son
it doesn't scare you? off to the Himalayas with you then.
but a mountain with a part called the 'corridor of death' or whatever is always going to scare me.
but not as ominous. i'd love to see the Himalayas close up. the highest i've seen is mont blanc, which looks MASSIVE. i can't comprehend what seeing everest/K2 etc must be like.
as it's surrounded by loads of other big mountains (90s lol). A friend posted a picture of it from an plane and it was difficult to tell which one was actually everest. The whole range would be pretty mad though.
both everest and K2 still look massive when you get there.
Can't wait. Shame it's the wrong season for making a go at the top.
Slight difference in scale there
and the other: none.
and now it's my bitch.
like a big pigs back
because I lived near it for a while
Mount Ranier - because it looks amazing in the back drop of the Seattle skyline and is nice to go for walks on.
he's choking to death on a bottle cap
You an see it from my bedroom window at my parents house. the summit is fierce- you have to do this thing called 'threading teh needle'.
I used to have nightmares about it occasionally when I was small. then I climbed it and now I have nightmares about it all the time.
it'a not actually tat hard. There's a hole in the rock just above where that guy is, and you go through the hole and then pull yourself through another hole onto the summit . if you had to scale the outside of the cairn you'd die without ropes.
(I looked down.)
and rolled down a large part of ben nevis once. It was a bit like extreme sledging.
I hate the descent, but by the time you get to it, you just want a pint and a change of socks, so you just get on with it.
the descent from the cobbler is awful, because for some reason the eldge you're on seems to suck you out to the edge, whereas on the way up it's easier to lean in anway from the ledge.
Cold sweat now thinking about it. I must have been suicidal at the time.

looks a bit like you.
I only listen to football these days - much more enjoyable when you make up the goals in your head.
It's was pissing down and really windy so couldn't go on top of the needle.
At dusk. it was pretty. I got bitten a lot.
Also cycling along the corniche between the col du Soulor and the col d'Aubisque is mind blowing
A lovely mountain viewable from almost anywhere in Cape Town
Snow pack was just ice, howling winds near the summit, no crampons. Turned back with only about 100ft of climb left.
My first defeat. Will have an extra beer later to drown my sorrows.
I want to see a picture of a mountain taken from ground level just looking straight up to the peak on a cloudless day so you can tell how massive it is
about how he got lost on the second-highest mountain in Wales. He described the experience as "scary" because of "all the drops and shit"
I like how isolated it is. Here are some pictures I took a few years back, which I posted on the Sunset Thread - remember that?! Great thread.
