Overnight our snail has been aiming for the (bottle)top.

Perhaps the genetic impulse of mountaineers is endemic here.

By the way – some Swiss still believe that by “borrowng” Sherpa Tensing from the Swiss Mountaineering team who were on Everest waiting for more oxygen to arrive, Hilary also stole the glory of summiting first!
