The Village and The Volcano

Safe in the knowledge that it hasn’t exploded for a thousand years, you and your grandpa head up the volcano which looms over your village. When Grandpa runs out of steam, you carry on alone. As you reach the peak, the ground begins to shake – it’s erupting. How will you get Grandpa down? And how will you warn the village?
