Good work, Mechy! Good job having some basics along. A pair of mylar sheets is standard in my little 'survival kit', too. So easy to carry, but could be so very useful! As you demonstrated there. And, of course, a SAK. (Additionally, when hiking in the hills, especially in wet, slick weather, I use a hiking pole or pair of trekking poles. They've saved me from a slip more than once.)
...On top of that, everyone starts the climb at the same time (thousands of people).The guide said not to take anything more than we'd take while out jogging... Yeah right....
Well done Mechanickal!
Nice one Mechy - she was lucky you were there
Not really, it was Mechy who poured the oil/banana mix beforehand in order to prove a point about being prepared.
Good job Nick!
