I have spent this week training in an attempt to some summer fitness before heading on to the limestone. Unfortunately, the long walls of Ratho beat you down mentally. At three quarters of the way up you arms start to melt, finger's uncurl and head start to prepare for the fall that is so close to coming. This said it has been good fun struggling away on some excellent routes, the team have done a great job.
I will be guiding on Skye this weekend then back down to Yorkshire, bring on the limestone, and a few more kickings.
