Paradise Lost and Regained

Paradise Lost and Regained

By Simon Litchfield

‘If you can’t be good, be safe, and if you can’t be safe, be good’. Why then is everything epic this and epic that these days? I’m not talking about boulderers who get a little scared half way up a Diff: that’s not epic, all that is required is a pep talk from Mr. T to stop with the jibber jabber. And I am not talking about getting a minibus stuck in a tunnel, which may have been an odyssey but was certainly no epic worthy of Homer. No, I am talking about proper epics. Proper epics are a bit like STIs. They should be avoided at all costs, they are not enjoyable to have, there is a lack of protection, you think you might die and it’s a relief when you are rid of them. The only difference is that you are probably having fun when you get an STI.

New routes in the heights of northern England

Gazing across this sceptred isle it is easy to be inspired by the fantastic and varied climbing that can be found. Climbing guides document every route, eliminate, boulder problem and highball on offer, often in incredible detail with colour topos. Sadly one can also get the impression that every last centimetre of this land has already been climbed. Fortunately, this is not quite true, as a spectacular discovery shows.
