Still buzzing! I came, I fondled, I conquered! Here I am nearing the top of The Old Man of Hoy…the final pitch was amazing. I was enjoying every moment. I'd passed the 'scary' traverse, the crux move, the run-out pitch, I'd avoided the fulmars and there was nothing else to worry about, just brilliant bridging up the corner to the summit. Such a good feeling! I'm not disabled, I'm blind and able! 📷 @alastair__lee . @borealoutdoor @montaneofficial . . #oldmanofhoy #blindmanofhoy #blindclimber #paraclimbing #gimpsnotwimps #adaptiveathlete #leadclimbing #tradclimbing #tradisrad #orkney #scotland #britrock #climbing #climbingporn #climbing_is_my_passion #klettern #blind #ClimbingBlind
