An ancient 'assiduous potterer' still mentally stuck in the days of hawser-laid nylon, tape slings and Hiatt krabs. Primarily active in Scotland but have knocked about the Alps intermittently over 45 years from the Maritimes to the Julians, with occasional forays to Corsica, Iceland, Norway, New Zealand, Australia, and the Rockies. A lifetime's intense enjoyment.
