I was reading about these Greenpeace activists hanging from an oil rig on a bivy ledge . They were protesting drilling in the Arctic. This struck my as kinda wimpy behavior:
"Our activists hung there for more than 40 hours but last night, a freezing storm and high waves made them decide it was too risky. So we contacted the police to say we were stopping the action," he said.
So they were rescued by the police.
Freezing storm? That’s when the real climbers just get started. Or, rescue themselves.
