Ironically, I moved from NW Surrey to NE Scotland and my immediate training trails are waaaay flatter than those I had down south -I do have the Cairngorm's very close by though
I have Black Diamond, proving robust so far, but my heavy duty one I use for winter mountaineering definitely feel a lot less likely to break!
No mountains in Surrey but there are still some pretty steep hills, until five years ago they were my local training ground (Box Hill, Leith Hill, St Martha's Hill). TdS is what I'll be going for ...
Bugger to radiotherapy caro ((()))
Hubby did seem slightly gob-smacked at quite how much I've packed up. I won't pretend it's pleasant, but if you can get on a roll it's OK!
