    Can’t wait for global warming, so we’ll have a nice path to the summit instead of these glaciers.

    Apparently, this is not the first time Higgins has missed his step – his team is the only one using safety ropes

    Ah, back in the good old days, before safety equipment was mandatory.

    /// The Ascent of Mont-Blanc through a pass

    halted when Higgins hit a crevasse.

    He’d have fallen for sure,

    but his rope stayed secure.

    Three men pulled him up, saving his äss.

    /// When he slipped you could hear Higgins bellow.

    He was frightened of falling. This fellow

    screamed so loud as he cried

    that it caused a snow slide.

    Higgins, like all their leggings, was yellow.

    Remember, if you fall here, they won’t find your body for 200 years, until all this melts away.

    The mountains are so full of tourists these days, you can’t even end it all in peace without a bunch of guys “saving” you!

    What’d I tell you about that first step being a dilly? Lucky for you that you’ve brought along a change of underwear.

    Baxter seems to be painting this in the middle of the crevasse judging from ;point-of-view’too bad Higgins didn’t use the the platform Baxter set his easel on. . .

    The other 18 guys on the glacier couldn’t give a shite if Charlie fell into the crevasse. He was always going on about global warming and climate change….what a dweeb!

    I think those wishing to traverse a glacier / Should be clear on what they could face here. / You need to take care how you go / Over icy compacted snow, / Or you could easily vanish without a tracer!

    There was only one reason that they saved Higgins’ sorry äss. He was the one with the car keys, cash, and credit cards.

    Mounting Everest is only for the hardcore, and it’s really no place to practice your parkour.

    The Glacier du Tacconay

    Paste (including the quote marks) 

    "Category:George Baxter (printer)" site=commons.wikimedia.org 

    (syntax supported by the Google, Bing, Yahoo, DuckDuckGo, and Ecosia search engines) in the browser address bar (or search for it using one of those search engines) and choose the first Category: found, and once there find the first Tacconay text string, and click its link for info and links that point to more info about this illustration. References has the strip coloration image.

     

    Again, a larger strip image is shown by (Ctrl- or right-) clicking the image in Mr. Melcher’s MASTERPIECE #2976 (August 11, 2022) blog entry, accessible by the Check out the blog! box after the last comment, and using the dropdown menu (even larger if you trim what’s after .png from the URL). I have added a comment there (awaiting Mr. Melcher’s approval) pointing to info about this artist I used to point to here. First work by this artist used here.

    As the exploration team traversed the body of the mega-humanoid in the asteroid field around Canopus, Ensign Higgins fell into a deep dimple. He barely escaped the skin mites lurking within!
