skin loss


can't type much. fingers too raw. a great morning at burbage south with a very patient and gracious teacher.

i'm still amazed that adele agreed to take a bunch of weirdo's (well, vikki and jon) off the interent before even vetting us. hope we didn't scare her off!

bouldering on actual factual rock is brilliant, i don't know why it's taken me so long to get outside.

So you don't count yourself as a weirdo off the interweb?

Ouch!

Having said that, it sounds brilliant. I'd like to try bouldering at some stage, but I'm so height-phobic that even standing on a chair makes my head swim *g*

hee hee - I with peewiglet - the last time I tried climbing (well, Via Ferrata in the Alps - does that count?) I nearly cried I was so scared. And then they told me there was no way out so had to keep going .... not happy!!

I think my climbing days might be firmly behind me ... or just by-passed me all together! Although it's funny how abseiling down waterfalls out canyoning doesn't bother me ... strange!

glad you enjoyed it Kate. Happy to take you outside climbing again ( well until you start out climbing me ;) which won't be long )

Trying to click the mouse this morning isn't funny. I've resulted to using my thumb.

Thank you for a great day.

We must formulate adding some rock time into the top secret winter training programme.

trio- me, weird-never!

peewiglet- that's what's great about bouldering-the lack of height ;)

starfish- i'm beginning to get the impression you're a bit of a secret adventurer. via ferrate is supper scary!

ppc- you're a great teacher but i'm a long way off the one handed style ;)

red- maybe you should wear your gloves ;)

jumbly- sshhhh! ;)
