  1. What a great episode to springboard off of to post “Scenic Mountaintop” as a download 🙂 The office felt a bit cooler today while listening to this episode for some reason…

  2. My favourite line from Touching the Void, “Bloody hell, I’m going to die to Boney M”.

  3. That Ötzi dude was one tough guy. I think I read recently they’d found that he has tattoos under his armpits!

    I’m going to send these episodes to a mate of mine who’s hiking up to Base Camp next year with his son. Rather him that me!

  4. It’s always a dream of mine to climb mountains. Now it seems I ought to prepare for it to be the last thing I do!
