Tall stories

There was an interesting story in The Telegraph yesterday - the fur's flying over accusations of folk Photoshopping their pics with the intent of "proving" that they topped-out on Everest.

I never felt the need to cheat in such a manner. After stopping for a beer some way short of the top I dozed off, and when I awoke I found that the support team had gone home so I never quite reached the summit.

Don't believe me? Here's a photo to prove it:

 Not to scale.
