Tales of Derring Do

An evening at the RGS listening to a couple of old climbing pals recounting a harrowing tale of one of their climbs in the Karakorum. Doug Scott famously broke both his legs just coming off the summit and abseiled/crawled all the way back to base camp with the help of Chris Bonington and his team.

It's a miracle these two ever survived to become old and grey, unlike many of their friends and contemporaries.
