Time to talk about Skye

I’m very aware that I’ve slacked off writing on here,  I’ve even avoided reading and commenting on blogs. And that sucks as I love you guys and I’ve done so.e cool bouldering recently. I guess the elephant in the room is Skye. I went up with a large group of climbers and had amazing experiences 

I saw sea eagles and golden eagles

I climbed epic hills

Walked to beautiful places 

And took a dip in the coldest freshest water you can imagine 

And spent time with wicked brilliant beautiful people

But I also discovered fear. I hated the exposure on multipitches. Not helped by rolling a block on to my toe on the first day. I found it paralyzing and to the point where I struggled to lead anything of any grade. Which was frustrating and I felt had a negative impact on those around me. 

I swore in the last day I wouldn’t multipitch again. I’m still at that point if I’m honest. Certainly not big ones anyhow which frustrates me as I love the way multipitch gets you somewhere. I don’t know how to overcome it

Check my van though 🙂

Peace x

  1. I can imagine people running up to your ambulance on Skye when there’s been an incident or an accident – it still looks like one!

    Multi-pitch generally isn’t up to my taste either – I like to stick to single pitch. I don’t like hanging around on tiny ledges trying to manage rope and so on.
