The Angry Corrie 36: Apr-May 98

TAC 36 Index

More 666 than 555?

TAC36 has included a rockery (p13), plus the musings of Messrs Crocker (p14) and Crocket (pp6-7). So it can't be allowed to end without a few thoughts on "that most noble and majestic summit in all fair Angus". Local boy Grant Hutchison was invited to enthuse:

Face it: you'll never finish the Marilyns. Even valiant folk who have conquered Stac Lee by stepping from the rail of a heaving boat on to a guano-crusted climbing stance will still surely fail. For I give you - Crock! 555m, OS44, NO226633. Look at it on the map, or climb Hare Cairn and see it at close quarters. It's an innocuous, rounded little lump, but it protrudes above solid, circumferential, trackless Forestry Commission. No-one's going to get out of there alive. Science-fiction author Larry Niven once said: "Every world should have at least one unclimbable mountain." This one is ours.
