40 The climb to the summit of the Dufourspitze was in clouds on a snow covered ridge with plaques where climbers and guides had fallen. They made interesting reading while on belay. A snow gulley that Petrig was climbing came lose. He called – I hope you have it. I called back I am bombproof. After the rope stopped his fall he later told me he had wondered as he was falling what American idiom bombproof meant.

41 Descent

42 . Petrig –Damn IT- Why did you stop? Mader – To take a picture – why are you bitching? Petrig – Because you stopped in the middle of a snow bridge over that big crevasse.
