Here’s some Christmas cheer for those of you who have been enjoying a plump turkey and a really good stuffing today. I tore the following page from the comic Viz when I was much younger than I am now, and it has been sitting quietly in a picture frame on my hallway wall for many years. It’s time it reached a wider audience.
I’m sure many of you will remember Viz from your school days. This particular cartoon strip features the character Finbarr Saunders and his Double Entendres, and is the episode where Mr Gimlet takes Finbarr mountaineering.
With apologies to those of you who don’t like schoolboy humour. And for those of you here for the first time, welcome to my blog and merry Christmas!

If you enjoy this blog it would be fantastic if you can give me a big thumbs up for my Lhotse climb by making a donation, but if you prefer not to then that's OK. I enjoy going on expeditions and writing the blog, and will continue to do both of them anyway.
