/// The Ascent of Mont-Blanc through a pass
halted when Higgins hit a crevasse.
He’d have fallen for sure,
but his rope stayed secure.
Three men pulled him up, saving his äss.
/// When he slipped you could hear Higgins bellow.
He was frightened of falling. This fellow
screamed so loud as he cried
that it caused a snow slide.
Higgins, like all their leggings, was yellow.
