No blogs just now ! Sorry

Sorry for no Blogs but been ill again -My apologies to all, typical in such great weather, full of penicillin no energy and looks like time to push the NHS again. I am so jealous of all you out enjoying the weather with family and friends. So glad that I get daily photos of my two beautiful grand children enjoying the sun and the family time.

I have just read an article on the Everest Tragedy in today’s Guardian  by Ed Douglas, it is a powerful piece.  Well worth a read and far better than this Blog.

Happy Easter – get out there and enjoy it.

    Hello Whalley,
    You can’t quit now! I trust this represents a well earned break due to you current health and energy. Running your blog which I have enjoyed for several years must have take unbridled energy. Well timed following first mention of your well reported events on Everest. Besides, I have just located some slides from our 1960 Vajolet Towers Trip with KMC friends and protecting heads with caps padded on their insides with Nylon carpet. I have sent them and hope they get to you and are clear.enough.
    I have benefitted from your princpals of safey each year. Happily copied them to my son who and especally my son who sumitted Mt Ranier last year. Checking gear, practicing techniques — essential. When I go out I use Lockable Komperdell trekking poles as per Walley. I have used The Tarbuck knot for climbing from the late `50s until about 8 years ago when I swung to a Double Figure of Eight when climbing on The Bluffs at Squamish.
    Encourging you to continue enjoying your dear grandaughters. I must be a bit your senoirs as we have just been blessed with number 8!

    I believe some people have suggested that you summerize your experiences in book form . I would heartily enthuse about that and would immediately purchase a copy.
    Safe climbling and mountain experiences — you have decades to go!

    Best wishes from Tim Mepham
