Well, it's Christmas time again. I don't know where the time goes. as it only seems like it was Christmas a couple of weeks ago! It has been quite an eventful year for me, ending in a broken foot and a helicopter ride! As I type this, I am still in plaster (it's been a month)! My plans for wintering in Scotland have had to be changed, but seeing as the winter is being fickle this year, I don't think i'm going to miss much. I've had some great times on the rock with some great people (Jez, Sue, Emma, Simon, Alan and co, Mosse and Hannah, Smudge, Mark G, Fay and Karen), in all manner of conditions and places...I've enjoyed every minute. I've even had some great surf sessions too. Who knows what next year will bring, but I do know I will be spending a lot of time working on the Chair Ladder section of the next Climbers Club guidebook. To everyone, have a very, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Safe Climbing!
