As I recall, Rob Slater reached the summit of K2 and then died on the descent.

I think you would call that... "a win win situation"

Well done, Ghandi would be proud. Maybe one day you'll realise how stupid that is.

"...This makes these crags the place to go if you're in need of a belayer and can also make for a nice social scene. On the other hand you're likely to get queues, and all sorts of hanger-on "personalities" (aka f*ckwits), from dreadlocked fire-stick twirling wankers to emaciated over-tanned dope-addled semi-permanents with every move wired but nothing rational to say. And we weren't even there in high season! "
