Drabble: Mountaineer

Title: Mountaineer
Author: badly_knitted
Characters: Jack, Ianto.
Rating: G
Written For: Challenge 422: Ledge at tw100.
Spoilers: Nada.
Summary: Jack practices his rock-climbing skills.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.

Jack climbed the rock face slowly and laboriously, feeling for finger and toeholds provided by narrow crevices and ledges. It was hard work, every foot gained through strenuous effort, but he needed to reach the top of this ridge, where a small alien scout ship had crashed.

His right hand gripped a ledge sticking out about eighteen inches above his head. He was an experienced climber, but he wondered how the others were getting on.

Just a little further.

A hand reached down to help him. Jack stared at Ianto. “How’d you get here so fast?”

“We took the footpath.”

The End


Ha ha ha ha ha, oh Jack, you do make hard work for yourself sometimes!

He never seems to learn...

Thank you!
Lol Im sure Jacks a bit anoyed about that.

Great drabble

Probably. He was just so intent on getting to the top that looking for alternative routes never occurred to him. It's a good thing Ianto is on the ball!

Thank you!
Poor Jack. He tries so hard.Never underestimate Ianto. I'm sure there will be comfort back at the Hub
I'm sure there will, but at least Jack's keeping in practice with the mountaineering!

Thank you!
Doh! ^_^
Leave it to Jack to take the hard road. LOL!
He's just very direct - the ridge was there so he took the shortest route up. It just wasn't the fastest!

Thank you!
*lol* But I think part of Jack enjoyed this challenge ;)
I think he likes climbing, and it's good to practice, but he probably feels a bit silly ;)

Thank you!
