Adge , you make me blush...
I did not make it entirely to the top .
a 50 m wide patch of snow stopped most of us about 100 m before the top .
only very light trial bikes could get trough .

I'm still impressed , my friend! I got to the check point and was told by an Englishman with a scooter that I would not get much further, but I did not want to take his word for it so I carried on as far as the infamous Rock. I knew the RS would not go over it so I tried to go around it but could not without breaking something. I was happy to have done more than I needed to but was dissapointed not to have gone further so we did the only thing possible for an Englishman in such circumstances and put the kettle on and had a cup of tea!
Anyway, If I had known what it was like I would never have attempted it but now I KNOW what it is like I will return next year with every intention to get further and higher.
Here's to Stella 2008!
