Scottish climbing legend Rab Carrington reads two stories: His own An Early Ascent of Raven Gully, about a winter ascent of the classic line on The Buchaille and Tom Patety’s A Short Walk with Whillans, in which the fondly-remembered Tom Patey recounts a typical attempt on The Eiger in the company of Don Whillans. The video I refer to, show to pick up the end of a piece of rope, can be found on this page.  

You know the score. Listen on the listener, spread on the spreader.
