Where Egos Dare
Can’t do it - don’t know how to do it: tell a fellow hillwalker how not to get killed. Saturday, three blokes were coming off Bearnagh on the North side of the wall at Hares Gap - 40/50s fit, kitted out, no fools, but a bit baffled. I caught the eye of one of them over the wall. “Watch yourself,” I said. “Why?” he said. “Because you’ll get killed,” I said. “Why?” he said ….. and I knew were getting into a stand-off. “I’m just saying…” I said - and you know when you get to “I’m just saying”, whatever control you may have had on the situation, has just evaporated. “You’ll only get off there, with ropes,” I said, sounding like a complete nkr. “Why?”, he said. “Look”, I said “there are crags” and stomped off. The problem kind of is, that most people, with notable exceptions, on the hills are mature, wise and knowledgeable, but contrarily, not enough to welcome advice readily. I am myself that soldier. We are a cross section of society, a bit skewed, yet do have our fair share of know-its-all - and what we all don’t want to be is one of them. I can hear braying of “just tell them and stop being such a wuss,” but my last point remains. Well anyway, rather than let them pogo into infinity, I waited at the bottom of the crags squinting into the sun, to scold them were they not to be advised. They were advised and cut back across the wall. Yes the sun - it is official: Spring has sprung in the black North, circa cheese sandwich time Saturday 23rd inst and celebrated in time-honoured fashion by Billy kicking the F out of Dan and Dan kicking the F out of Billy.
