/ My drug is the Scottish Winter
Good on you.
Its a pretty unique form of climbing and its probably my favourite out of the lot.
Its an expensive business if you live down south though.
nah, it takes 30 years but you eventually realise that sun baked rock climbing is much more enjoyable!
You're hooked when you end up with a picture like this for 15 minutes on the laptop screen and you haven't touched the coffee by your side or finished the hobknob......
....and when somebody asks " Just what are you looking at?"..... you say..."potential"
Yeah its good isn't it!
it's an addiction that takes hold :D Well done!
And a s abonus you get to sell all you summer kit to pay for the winter habit!
30 years? I'll be 78!
Mine's Norwegian Ice.
Happy days indeed, and may you have many more :)
