LOL! Masada much?

That's one frightening spoilheap. And only early June!
Clearly I have too much 'Roman Army on the Brain'....

Anthea it reminds me of the spoilheap from 3 years ago in area B. Justin had us climbing higher and higher, needed oxygen at the top.

It's good for one's health. I'll keep reminding myself of that. :)

You liked the spoil heap? This is the south-west face :blink:
Dang. It's the Matterhorn, so it is.

Now, this is in Area A, right? Not Justin's area?

It probably will look like your photo Eric when we all arrive the week after next! and all of the wheelbarrows are squeaking - must remember the WD40!! :)














I salute you, and all the redoubtable 'A Team' members. I shall wave at you from Justin's area.

(OTOH, Justin may just set me to wheeling endless barrow-loads from both areas as punishment for my hubris.)
