Matroosberg when the cold front hits
« on: July 29, 2013, 01:46:23 pm »
Four days spent on Matroosberg in extreme windy and cold conditions changing to stormy snowy whiteout. Note the guy and his partner we met on our way down totally ill equipped to be on the mountain near the end of the video. And we now know why we have so many emergency rescues as they were not to be persuaded to abort their day outing.
We had numb hands and they were not even wearing gloves and carrying on up into even colder and snowy heights.
