We’d climb something else. 26 • A W A L K I N T H E C L O U D S ▲ The longest day When summer climbs are dreamed of at home during the winter months, ideas and ambitions often outstrip reality. Sometimes the weather gods conspire against the best-laid plans, and time runs out before much can be achieved, as Keith and I found in the late spring of 1975.

About three paces long by two wide, it had a low, absorbent roof through which the rain dripped at unsuitably strategic points.

Well, I gave up on sleep and headed for the mountains once more. ▲ Tragedy on Jean-Pierre Mike and I were brought up in neighboring villages, started climbing together in north Wales, and several years later shared a rope in the Atlas Mountains. He had a natural talent on rock, and for a while we planned to open a climbing school in Snowdonia, but our lives took different directions and inevitably that dream faded.

I crawled out in a vain attempt to see the source, but all was dark save for the distant flash of lightning behind black, shapeless mountains. The nightingale cared nothing for that far-off storm, but sang as though all of life depended on it.
