Topic - Reasons to be cheerful

thomaspomfrett on 19 Feb 2013
I know it's not unusual for UKC users to have some fairly strong opinions on pretty much anything and that is part of what makes the forums so fun, but all the recent arguments on the "is trad dying" thread and media sensationalism about banning winter climbing has led me to try and reflect on the positive side of climbing.

I really enjoy trad, sport, bouldering (albeit mainly indoors), winter ice, alpine, Scottish winter and even the odd walk if the conditions are really that bad. It's not ideal living in the south and I may not exactly push the boundaries of difficulty but in the two years I've been climbing I've got out as much as I can, seen some amazing places, met some amazing friends and had an absolutely brilliant time.

I'm leaving work in an hour heading for Scotland and I've got that euphoric feeling I only get when I'm going on a climbing trip. Hopefully I'll see some of you out there!
