"As sure as mountain goats are able to scale seemingly impossible cliff faces of the steepest order, then so the footsteps of mankind tread cautiously in their wake.
I must confess to never having had a head for heights and the only time I went rock climbing, I did myself an injury when I slipped from a crevice and fell about twelve feet before the safety rope stepped in to stop my descent.
As I swung in the breeze, the youngsters whom me and another three Probation Officers were overseeing on an adventure weekend in Wales laughed their heads off; especially when a dog passed me on the ascent of the cliff. After that experience I don't think I ever again put myself in a spot that I couldn't get out of when the going got too tough to handle." William Forde: July 3rd, 2014.
