Tom has written about his return to climbing after a difficult period in his life on his blog here: Tom Peckitt Blog.

Tom commented on the blog:

"The Uncertainty Principle isn't my hardest first ascent but it is certainly one of my proudest; not only for the climbing and the stunning line but what I have overcome and experienced over the last year to get here. So, after all the trials and tribulations of the last 18 months, I feel a stronger person...more mentally than physically at the moment. Life is always changing. Sometimes it deals you a winning hand, sometimes a losing one. One thing is for sure - uncertainty is certain."
