"Will they; won't they?" is probably the first thing you'd think when faced with a team of climbers about to attempt one of the world's 14 peaks of more than 8,000m, or indeed any expedition where the aim is to get from A to B and back again without dying. It's the kind of detached gambling that makes more people spectators than participants. And so, when the playwright David Greig forestalls the gamble in the first moments by placing his lead climber at the summit of Lohtse, it's rather like a mental rap on the knuckles.
