Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)
Remember me:
durr, I forgot...

My hand's falling off...

Remember the guy who got trapped under a boulder and cut his own arm off to escape?

Well, he's back climbing and back in trouble...

"One screw was gone and the other five were coming loose. As Aron Ralston collected himself at 13,900 feet on Mount Wilson, following a dicey, off-route traverse on a solo climbing mission, he was astonished to see his ice-tool rattling free. The tool, attached to his prosthetic right arm by a socket joint and held fast by screws, was about to fall off."

Having left his tools in his tent, Ralston undertakes repairs with an ice axe: "Three times the former mechanical engineer took apart his prosthetic wrist — where forearm meets either hook, pick or enhanced plastic hand — and three times he screwed it back together."

Ralston is still telemarking too, but doesn't allow himself the "luxury" of a ski pass... There's also talk of a film, from the Touching the Void team.

What is he going to Touch the Void with? His missing arm? Laughing

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

What better way to touch a void?
I merely have to appreciate with my missing brain...
