Take It To The Top

There were a few low points during Sir Ranulph Fiennes conquest of Everest. Fiennes was in constant contact with his team at base camp who captured the lowest, bleakest point on tape. The point where his lungs were bursting, he could see barely a yard in front of him and his comfortable home in England seemed a million miles away.

  1. I'll never forgive that Jade woman for being rude to him on Big Brother.

  2. Ha Ha.

  4. Vicus - I thought this marvellous post would bring you out of hibernation.

    Rog - The top of Everest was the only place he could get away from her.

    Kaz - Yes. But you never get a Sherpa as the brave mountaineer. Maybe because it's piss easy for them.

    Scarlet - Him and Chris Moyles.

  5. Sherpa tensing...


    I just got it.

  6. I think Vicus wishes he hadn't.
