Happy New Year

Well, in 2011 I've skied off of an iceberg and for a week flat out to make a plane with less than an hour to spare. I've guided a 6 and a half thousand metre peak and I've done less rock climbing but jumped onto harder routes on the days I've had on trad. I've been spanked on Spanish bolts and sunk my hands into Caifornian heucos bouldering. I've almost drowned mountaineering as I've seen the wettest year in Lochaber in the 8 years I've lived here. I've met a new nephew and seen my wee boy pedal off down the street on his bike and swim and ski. Come on 2012.... top that!
Thanks to those who have tied on with me this year or shared time on the hills, old friends and new. Here's hoping anyone who reads this has a safe, happy, prosperous and successful new year.
