Rolling stones gather no moss…but can kill you!

The fourth day of acclimatisation meant continuing the hike up the VCSP pass with full packs. Due to the rock fall last night we all put helmets on and used ropes in places to haul ourselves up steep terrain with loose boulders.

During a rest-stop someone kicked off a sizable boulder that flew past the team and smashed into a pair of trekking poles, almost snapping them in half. It made us think carefully about where to place the tents going forward!
