On now on Quest
There's a gratuitous amount of 'expletive deleted' bleeps!
Just started the serious climbing - can't believe the size of Leo Holding's rack - how on earth does he do delicate balancy moves with so much gear?!
Lovin the yellow furnace jacket... shame I cant find one
Both I guess... men are always better with gadgets!
Spotted my yellow Temperence jacket, most of them have the blue one tho. It's nice to know I'm not alone.

I know, I know, but I couldn't let that one go.
I noticed the jetboil too, presumably they don't subscribe to the theory of gas being useless in the cold which seems to pop up here now and then! I'm surprised I haven't seen more Berghaus gear given the sponsorship.
I'm still suffering from secondary vertigo - the idea of sitting/sleeping in one of those wall tents knowing that all that stands between you and thousands of feet straight down is a couple of millimetres of fabric makes me want to lie on the floor! I know it's been thoroughly tested and they're used all the time, but vertigo isn't rational.
There are some things that I know with absolute certainty that I wouldn't want to do, even if I had the ability and finance: climbing Everest for one; doing this 'big wall' stuff is another - there is no way on earth I'd spend a night in a pup tent attached to a vertical lump of rock by a few bits of gear.
What I would like to do is see the Northern Lights; which is entirely within both ability and finance! One day...
And jumping off mountains with a parachute on is another thing to add to whatever is the inverse of a 'bucket list'.
One of my favouite shots was of Stanley jumarring the ice off that fixed rope - brilliant shot.
Although if you're brave enough it sure beats climbing down.
Anyway, it's a school night so to speak, so I'm off!
