Meant to quote you here @Mook

 

Went up Cairn Gorm on day 1. 

 

Then we did one next to it on day 2 that isn’t a Munro. 

 

Today i did one called Sgòr Gaoith. 

 

I’m saving Ben Macdui for when I know the conditions are gonna be spot on.

Apologies, I got carried away with myself looking at the pictures.

Easily done. I almost ripped my cock off once I got to his first selfie. The Bitch is a good looking lad

Nice one, good luck with it.

 

I've only been to The Cairngorms once (didn't make it up any Munros), it's a wild place.

Great to hear you got yourself on to a skills course...although there doesn’t look to be a lot of snow about

The ski places are struggling because there’s not enough snow for them. Think there was only one lift open and that was just a beginners one on the lower slopes. 

 

Enough for me to need my crampons though so screw those skiers.

Saw a brilliant documentary on National Geographic  (which is on catch up) about an expedition to find George Mallory’s climbing partner Sandy Irvine and hopefully his camera to try and find out if they actually made the summit The scenery breathtaking and well worth trying to get in it HD.

Fuck me though the queues to get up to the top of Everest kind of puts queueing to get into the Asda into perspective .

The legend of Hamish MacInnes is on BBC iPlayer if any real mountain nerds fancy wasting an hour and 20 mins.

Known as the fox of Glencoe, he lead an extraordinary life and there's some cracking old footage and stories including his design of safety and rescue gear that's still in use now and also telling how he was mis-diagnosed with dementia and locked up in a mental ward with nobody listening to his protests when he had a urinary infection. Pretty sad how such a legend who saved countless lives was thrown on the scrapheap for a time.

I watched that a couple of weeks back. A bit intense, wasn’t he?

I also suspect his interpretation of what happened to him when he was detained in hospital was a little different from the reality. Delirium is a very common feature of a UTI which may well have resulted in his detention as he had temporarily lost the capacity to make sound judgements about his fitness to leave hospital or otherwise

Yeah he was intense, I thought on one of the old interviews when he was talking about friends he’d lost that he was almost dead behind the eyes.

I’ve been to a few talks given by climbers of that era, Chris Bonnington, Joe Brown, Don Whillans, and they all spoke in a very similar casual way about the deaths of close friends. Occupational hazard. Quite uncomfortable listening

I’ve only been to one, that was with Kenton Cool and he was almost in tears talking about the death of a Chinese man that had been left but there was no way of getting him down. I can’t remember the exact story but he was possibly still alive when they found him. 
 

Some great names there though, Champ.

This landed on the doormat this morning, a man can dream that one day we will be allowed out of the house again. 
 

I was planning on climbing all of Scotland’s Munro’s as a bit of a life challenge, there’s 282 of them and my plan was to save all the very best ones as something to look forward to, but last year has taught me that that’s a fucking wank idea, life is too short and absolutely anything could happen and I could be dead or have lost the use of my legs and I’d have to look at pictures of the likes of Liathac, so I’m gonna do all the best ones first and maybe do them over and again up different routes. Fuck doing some boring ones for the sake of completing a list. 
Fuck you in the face 2020 and fuck you in the face 2021 so far too and fuck you in the face too Boris Johnson you incompetent wanker.

Yet more absolute fucking heroes these people who risk their lives rescuing others stuck on mountains. Utmost respect for them.

I began 2020 saying one of my plans for the year was to climb more mountains. That turned out well

Have  a look at Docker's profile.  Daisy is on a spree, negging every breath he takes; no idea why.

    • You must mean big league because there aren't many bigger clubs around than his current team 
    • His stats for stealing a fucking living are absolutely sky-high.
    • the more i watch of thiago is he looks a slightly less mobile version of gini. i know everyone says thiago's passing is great, but i am convinced that's just because he plays no look passes, i don't see any benefit over what gini contributes. maybe i am wrong, but i reckon we got thiago as gini's replacement, but we were able to fund it early by selling brewster and using lallana's wages and if barca had bid enough for gini, we'd have snatched their hands off. thank fuck they didn't. no way he's here next year though sadly. let's hope we get someone to add value using gini's wages - fuck knows where the fee will come from. 
    • I think you're right but I wish you weren't.    I don't  get why the club paid what it did for Thiago along with his wages yet not sort out a deal for Gini when there's very little age difference and he's already on the books.   He's a cracking player Gini, fit,  reliable and hard working. It doesn't make sense to me that he hasn't been offered a deal.   Because of his importance to the team, as far as I'm concerned,  it's a no brainer.
    • I've said I think if VVD stayed fit, this wouldn't be the problem it is.    As for this complete drop off, it has coincided with playing Henderson in defence and his place going to thiago - if I recall correctly Henderson's 1st game at centre back was Southampton, which was thiago's 1st start and this was our 1st defeat of the run we've had this year. That was the point our midfield stopped, except for the brief support it got from milner, when we actually picked up some points. So we dipped off when we 1st lost VVD, but the collapse went once we doubled down on destroying the midfield to support the defence. However, that didn't need to happen. We could have gone out and found someone and got it all signed and sealed like we did with VVD 3 years previous and he was ready to go. Once they waited till Gomez got injured, then everyone in the market place would fuck us. But it didn't take a genius to see he'd get injured, it's what he does.   It's massively bad planning. Going into the season the risk with vvd was there to see. We should have had plans in place in case this happened. We didn't need to act on it, but it's basic common sense if you're taking a gamble is you protect your position if it goes wrong. It shouldn't have taken both Gomez and Matip to get injured to see a reaction.    As for you comment about a rebuild - well we clearly need one soon as it's an aging squad. Assuming the players come back from injury at the level they were at before, I say carragher is right and we need 3 right through the spine. 2 of them should just be replacements for origi and Gini. The only one net new should be at centre back - and while unlikely, perhaps he's already at the club.
