Bleck Cra on Chimney Rock Mountain, 2004

Mountains are like women: wild, dramatic; thin and bitter or wide and warm - but all beautiful. (Yes yes … thin and bitter too…). “Pretty” is best - and the prettiest girl in the class is Chimney Rock Mountain: little, curvaceous, undemanding with some delightful nooks and crannies. Sunday I trailed up the entirely Bloody Bridge track. Cloud low; wind aggressive. Hold seawards of the wall to caress Chimney Rock’s ankle. Weave through raised bog into sandy tracks and a stroll to 3 small tops - the last, bearing the strangely melancholy construction that gives her her name. A glimpse of glen and of sea. Magical.
Drop down and up Rocky Mountain. And here he comes. A drip on his nose, face the colour of chewing gum, his hat skewiff and a 1:50 pinned to his chest. “You OK?”. “What?.” “Where you heading ?” “Chimney Rock,” he pointed, in the opposite direction. “Over there”. “No it isn’t”. He dug a shiny compass from the blackness of his sac and walked round it like a dog eyeing a frog “Very magnetic, these hills” he confided. I could feel a drip coming to my own nose. As the mist thickened, it cleared for him - that he was completely Alain Prost. “I came up the Annalong” - yeeees, in a banana boat. “to do some compass work”- yeeees, I’m waiting. “by Carr’s Face” - noooo, because you’re an idiot not a contortionist. Then I hit on it. “I was going to do the Mournes, Mont Blanc and back again but sure I think I’ll just go home.” He took the bait: “Ach, me too.” “You’ll be taking the wall, down there?“ I pronounced flawlesly, pointing like John Travolta, “to the road.” Exactly my plan,” he grinned, backing into his weightless world.
