I'm disappointed they weren't nude. Wearing swimsuits in that situation is very un-extreme.

Just because you can do something doesn't mean you should.

Awesomeness.

I have been to that exact spot, BTW.

There was no Jacuzzi.

Only bitter bitter cold.

Speaking of bitter cold, this is no 300 Club.

From the Google translation:
With our opinion, there will be certainly much less often groups of 20 people laid out to carry 20 kg on the back until the top of Mont Blanc (and return) that helicopters ready to accomplish tourist flights of a few minutes around these prestigious tops…
"Moon Over White Mountain"? I think they severely underestimate their target audience.

You don't need Google ... they have their own English version.

"J'accuse"-y-Filter: Swiss don't hot-tub without fondue. I didn't see a single fondue pot. Thus, an obvious example of clever Photoshop fakery. QED.

Now let's see them toboggan down the side of the mountain in the jacuzzi.

Oh jeeze.

What would Shelley say?

A desert peopled by the storms alone,
Save when the eagle brings some hunter's bone,
And the wolf tracks her there--how hideously
Its shapes are heaped around! rude, bare, and high,
Ghastly, and scarred, and riven.


Now, on the other hand, the place is really scary.

That was awesome.

I didn't realize they climbed through the night!

I especially liked the little comment at the end, where they very genially say, "sorry if you ran into us, when you were expecting the peace and quiet of the summit... And those assholes in the helicopters can blow it out their asses. Bunch of poser fuck-sticks." (roughly).

Kudos for climbing in the dark. I like it.

Actually, fyi, Hank Wangford - the eccentric British nude mountaineer and musician - is also a qualified gynecologist.

Climbing in the dark: you won't get to the top of Mont Blanc and back to where you started from if you don't start in the dark. Unless of course you're some kind of superman.

...to the top and back to where you started from within one day...

Why don't you go take a bath you damn dirty hippies! Oh, I see.

Doesn't it look like quite a sausage party up there? I mean there's women, but there's only like 4 or 5 and they seem to be huddled together. For protection? Warmth? Love?

And nobody got naked? Wha?
