Been walking since I was very young and seem to have got the hang of it... I've been up lots of hills & mountains including trips to the Alps, Arctic & Himalayas.
I have a solid steel carabiner at home. It weighs a ton and never gets used but it's there to remind me that retreating off an Alp can be a good idea. I'm out whenever the weathers nice mainly trad climbing up to about E1 in the summer (I have a great midge hat) & winter climbing up to Scottish 3/4 in the, ummmm, winter...
Umm... long scary tiring muddy mucky ones.
All of them.
I like trying to go up...
