text: For the first hours of the way, however, we are in friendly country, and there is no need for caution. Steeply we descend from the camp into the valley. It is still bitterly cold, and we grudge the loss of so much height. Now, early in the morning, we would gladly climb uphill, but, as it is, we shall probably have to climb the treeless slope opposite under a midday sun.
