On average during 2014 I climbed about 10.09615 problems or routes a week, every week, for the year.
I had set myself a target of over 500 lines at the end of last year having scraped in at 491 in the run up to Xmas.
There are no F9a's or E7's in this list of climbs, no new lines on Alpine faces, no sea cliff labryinths.
Probably an entirely unremarkable list, in fact.
However in the process we define ourselves.
In the conception we allow our dreams substance.
In the plan we flesh out our fantasy
In the doing we test our soul
In the achievement we glow
In the emptiness following, we realise our hopeless addiction and dream again to fill the vacuum.
In this feeling of eternal hunger we are all 525.
