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 :-)

Things clients say to their guides

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
In the golden age of mountaineering every English gentleman had a faithful guide he (or she: Walker with Anderegg) schlepped with him all over the alps even if their technical ability sometimes exceeded that of the guide himself - be it early high mountain climbing in the case of Whymper (guides: the Almers) or technical rock climbing in the case of Mummery (guide: Burgener). Their conversations are rarely recorded although Gaspard is said to have spoken these words to his client, Milord Castlenau after the first ascent of la Meije: "that's it, Sir, I've got one foot in the Romanche the other in the Vénéon".

But what do modern clients say to their guides, here are a few:

Are we lost?
I guess you got through the guiding exams on your climbing ability?
Would you like to borrow my GPS?
Is your iPhone dead?
We'll wait for you at the bottom.
It's called an "airbag"
I didn't think Ortovox F1 were still serviceable
It's called a "helmet"

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

"Are you lost"? (as you look at your map - yes one of those paper things you used to look at before GPS's and apps came along - to not get "geographically challenged" in the first place).
