Gear vs Fear

“This new micro cam will fit those small cracks on that route I was scared on, so I’ll be super confident next time.”

This is me.

These new quick draws are super light so I’ll be much quicker of that big winter  route .

This is me.

These new boots will motivate me to go higher and further for longer .

This is me.

How about climb well and I deserve a new cam. Actually do a big Alpine route and then see
the value in fancy light draws. Summit 4 munro’s  in one day then think about whether I need new boots.

Gear doesn’t make you climb well. Put your cash in your pocket or use it to travel and eat well at the crag.

From now on this is me.



Scottish based aspiring mountaineer always on the look out for some new adventure that will stretch and develop me. One half of a husband/wife Alpine adventure couple.
