Two flatland tyrolean bouldering sportclimbing freaks wanted to go high up. Finally they reached the top of Grand Capucin but found it always goes higher and higher and higher... Nice pictures of the Grand Capucin ascent and two little videos of the bergschrund and a 'little' storm in the tent. Simon did well. It was his first multipitch alpine climb at all. Wikipedia says: "Der Grand Capucin [gʀɑ̃ kapyˈsɛ̃] ist ein 3838 m hoher Berg in der französischen Mont-Blanc-Gruppe. Er gilt als der am schwierigsten zu besteigende Berg der Alpen (Normalweg im VII.

One time a long time ago on a mountain in Switzerland yo lo lo lo lo
There lived a fair young maiden lovely but lonely oh oh
Day after day she'd find her heart away yo lo lo lo lo hey cause no love came her way
One day her papa'd say some day you'll go down to the willage in the valley
There you'll meet a nice young man ask for your hand then you'll be happy
[ ac.guitar ]
But every day she grew unhappy on the mountain in Switzerland yo lo lo lo lo
Every day a little bit lonelier which way to turn which way to go
Day after day she'd find her heart away yo lo lo lo lo hey cause no love come her way
Some say the maidens dreams never came true she'd never got to go to the valley
If she didn't he really don't know oh oh oh did she die unhappy
Well now I'd rather think she found her love I would be rather if she'd find love
