However, what works for the route doesn’t necessarily help the athlete. The centimetre-thick layer of ice which Will has to remove from his safety rope at regular intervals doesn’t really make it easier for him to warm up to the route.
This Terry-Toon takes a look at some of the odd characters who populate the polar regions; a wolf whose only function is to howl at the moon all night, an Eskimo, with an igloo with a view, who acts out, and explains in double-talk, the details of his life; and the bear whose only occupation is to sleep around the clock.
