Okay... So I may have agreed to do some blogging about climbing. This can only go well. I'm being serious!
There are two (possible) benefits to this...
1. I will have a reference point with dates for when my memory fails me and I can't remember things so well (this happens sursprisingly often, I argue I'm not to old and decrepit I just have way to much to remember all at one!)
2. To Dave's delight I may actually formulate a plan, a clear pathway of ticks "that'll go" because "they have my name on them"...
Worst case I get to ramble on here.
So, from this day on I pledge to climb more scary things outside... I will in the course of the next few outdoor sessions (if the rain will hold off long enough!) formulate a tick list to work towards. I am assuming that after all the summer rain we will have an amazingly dry winter with lovely friction.
Tomorrows climb night will be spent biking instead - forecast is rubbish and poor Mr P has so had enough of indoor climbing!
