Completing number 37 off my 40 at 40 list – make a pot

Disappointed that a chesty cough had put paid to me competing in the Lancaster half marathon and didn’t feel well enough to do fell walking.  Thought lets do something off my list.

Kendal climbing wall is one of the tallest walls in the country. The wall is a customer of mine, I was cheeky and tapped them up for some free passes including gear hire and he gave me some rope so I can practice the figure of 8 knot needed for climbing.
