|View of Scotland from Broadford|
|Ben na Caillich|
Buds appearing. Sun shining. Spring is on its way.
Catching our breath. Looking down. Enjoying the view.
Getting steep. Scrambling up. Wondering how we'll get down.
Body shaking. Realisation I can't go further. Turning back.
Yesterday was the first day I found a mountain I couldn't get to the top of. When faced with a very steep section, where I would have to climb over rocks that may move beneath my feet, I remembered I have a fear of falling. I knew I could get up. I just didn't think I'd be able to go back down again. As my body started shaking, I yelled up to Corey that I was heading down. We may have failed in our attempts, but we got down with all our limbs intact. So I'd call it a success.
Today's walk will be chosen by me. It won't involve near vertical climbs.
