Recuperation - ABC
It was a time for reflection on how we had been denied the summit, but c’est la vie. The main thing was that nobody on our team had been injured. We did not have enough time for another attempt, and quite frankly no-one had enough energy left. We were therefore going to leave ABC early. To take our minds off events some of us played cards. I had never played cards for 8 hours straight through a day. I now have nightmares about the two of clubs. Doug ‘Radar’ Ward was finally defeated, so the day was not a dead loss.
