Albert climbs the Old Man of Hoy - Part 1
Kathy met Albert in the Red Cross charity shop in Stromness and could see that he was longing to break free for an adventure! So, purchasing him for 0.50p she continued with her other climbing pals to the island of Hoy. After spending a wonderul night in a comfortable bothy at Rackwick we set off at around 8.30 am yesterday and walked the several miles to the foot of the rock pillar. From there 5 pitched of amazing climbing, graded at E1, took them to the summit.
