Tune of Choice: Alive by Skipinnish
Memorable Moment: Massive day of Scottish winter on my fourth weekend in a row, spending the day in zero visibility and being absolutely terrified, then not getting back to the car until 8:30, totally wrecked. Then getting up to do it all again the next day.

Tune of Choice: My Silver Lining by First Aid Kit
Memorable Moment: Running back from range east in Pembroke to get to the fish and chip shop before it closed! We'd had a long day of brilliant climbing and swimming in the summer sun and made it just in time to sit in the park at dusk with our well earned sustenance.
