Came late to this thread and itís filled with good stories.

Stich-you were in a cave and when you tried to get out the entrance was sealed? What a horror! You should sell the movie rights.

Blakey- Blimey! You put socks over EBs to improve traction on wet rock? That is something Iíve only heard about in the ancient lore! Didnít Joe Brown do that on the first ascent of Cenotaph Corner?

Jan-Sherpas going barefoot to handle treacherous ice? Iíve heard of barefoot rock climbing, but ice? Now thatís hardcore.

MFM-Count me as another curmudgeon who does not like "Cali". I wrote a piece in Climbing when Bachar died and the editor substituted "Cali" for "California" without telling me. Still irritates me.

More bivvy stories lurk round here--
Let us stop to lend an ear
To tales of woe from yesteryear.
