With Pete H, battled our way up Spiral Gully (Grade II)to severe wind and ferocious gusts on the plateau. I led us on a minor top bagging battle before fleeing to more sheltered ground. Sadly on this same day Andy Fanshawe was killed on Eagle Ridge, Lochnagar, and a helicopter crashed into the North Sea at Comorant A, killing 11 onboard in severe conditions - making rescue very difficult. Regulations have been tightened since this so flying is only permitted if rescue in the event of a crash is more achievable in the sea state at the time.Chris Pearson14/03/1992
