My first ever experience of mountains was on a school trip to the Lakes, staying at the YHA Newlands hostel near Keswick. We did Cat Bells after a few days of training walks around Derwentwater. I must have got the taste for it then as I still love the mountains more than 50 years later.
"So I was sitting in my cubicle today, and I realized, ever since I started working, every single day of my life has been worse than the day before it. So that means that every single day that you see me, that's on the worst day of my life."
