Two weeks in, fun, tiring, demoralising, mind opening, frustrating and scary.
from the stress and tiringly slow progress of bolting from the ground up to the elation of making it to the top of the cliff, the renewed enthusiasm of seeing a rope dangling the height of the cliff and the fear of finding a badly worn rope 160 metres off the deck.
The beauty of the place, the harsh temperature, the ferocity of the rain, the size of the spiders and real life dragons! Not forgetting our celebrity status amongst the locals!
Life on Berhala has not been what I expected so far, time will tell how successful the project will be but in Naz and Al there is always bundles of enthusiasm and energy around the camp.
Add to that more unclimbed rock that I have ever seen anywhere, surely we cant go wrong?
