"Damnit, Scotty, you set the coordinates wrong again! And what happened to our uniforms?"

[Alex Huber, Stephan Siegrist, and Thomas Huber, left to right, in Queen Maud Land, Antarctica. Read the story of their three new routes here.]

The girls of UKClimbing.com thank you Dougald for posting that.

Any plans for a poster?

It's like an album cover from the ’80s.

Stephan is clearly thinking:
Alex fell again, look at all the snow on his knees. This guy can't handle horizontal ground.
Alex is thinking:
why did Thomas not shave his chest? This is going to ruin the picture.
Thomas is thinking:
I hope my wife does not see this.
