It was OK as long as we didn't walk into the wind. Unfortunately, down there in the white there is a junction at which we had to do just that. The path being invisible, we walked off the edge of the mountain in the snow hoping we would land on a path below. More accurately, James walked - perhaps he could even see where he was going - while I, eyes stinging and being blown around like a little leaf, clung on to him pathetically.
