A good read, especially after reading Jane's own account beforehand. Well done!

Was the first bivy at the top of pitch 1?

Way to stick with it!

Sounds like a fun trip, and the storm maybe even helped you get more for your money.

Given the positioning of the text, next to the first photo, it looked like it was going to be someone having a dump!

I and a partner bailed from pitch five some years ago, but because it was too hot! (All the water in the world could have been drunk).
