Of course we did have ropes and safety equipment but I was obviously being stupid for the camera!

Never look down the slope! :) Skye, I loved it, but of course, I didn't have the time climbing up the mountains and to be honest, I wouldn't have the strength anymore. I visited the otter sanctuary instead and I wanted to see them in a bay, but was nearly being eaten by tiny mosquitoes - I fled in panic :) May

Mario,
Bergfex,
May, they are called midges and can be horrible. I was lucky on the two week-long visits I made in 1978 and 1980.
Yves, yes it's me!
Karl,
Jean-pierre, thank you but about 38 years too late!
Thank you all and have a good weekend!

Thank you all for your kind comments. I wasn't brave or courageous. I was 1 metre off the ground! This was just for show! Best wishes, Andy

No es que ponga en duda tus condiciones físicas para la escalada, pero veo demasiado limpias las botas.
La foto es muy buena..., eso si. ;-)) :-))

Campayo, well seen! But not so! There wasn't much rain in the weeks before our visit. The leather does have scratches from the granite but the boots look clean because 1, they were relatively new and 2, there wasn't any mud (incredibly for The British Isles!)!
Teresa.
Thank you both.

The only risk that I recall, Tone, was that I had to do a swift hop from one foot to the other and then stretch to a (thankfully generous) handhold. Next step the North Face of the Eiger and then ...

Oh my God, Andy that scares me this photo, extraordinary record, but what fear
The other day I almost fell taking pictures from the Palisades, which are on the Hudson River, on the Jersey side, I fall but when I walk to a safe area, if it becomes the tip of the stone I kill myself , and all for a small pebble stone, which I left in the slots of the slipper slip but when I was in a flat and safe thanks to God I just gave a strong blow to the head, on the rock, Greetings Merry Christmas have some extraordinary moments with your family enjoy
