Everything was going far too well, but we all had our eyes on a Channel 4 funded reconstruction so we needed DRAMA.

We'd brought bechamel sauce to have with our pasta the night before, but when we went to prepare it we realised that we needed milk, not water. What the hell were we to do? - we didn't have any milk.

Suddenly the reality of the situation dawned on us - we are in a low risk situation, the weather is fair, we have plenty of back up food and nobody is injured. Lumpy, watery bechamel wasn't going to make the final cut of the film version. So we cut a rope. OK, so it's been done before, and we weren't actually climbing with ropes, but there we are - decisions are decisions, and this is one we'll ALL have to live with.
