You’ve heard me talk about my climbing days and having no fear or anxiety – so here is a picture and short story!
This is me on Mt. Kenya in 1993. We had an early morning start from the top hut, heading for Point Lenana (16354 ft / 4985 m).
We were living in South Africa at the time and our gear was really not that great. In fact, my waterproof pants were homemade, I had borrowed boots and an ancient ice-axe! And check out the trendy purple “snood”/neck-face warmer I had bought in Scotland a few years earlier.
We had a blast anyway! What a trip and great “honeymoon” – we went to Kenya/Tanzania for 6 weeks and got married afterwards. It was a weather thing – good weather for the climbing trip in December/January and good wedding weather in March.
If you can relate to any of this or have your own adventures to share please share in the comments below.
