We're sharing our wee B&B with one of the two star climbers of the programme, Dave MacLeod. He's spending his days dangling from abseil ropes (tricky on such a hugely overhanging cliff) trying to decide which new line to attempt. Each day he does a long walk in and out. The life of a professional rock climber is a strange one.
Joe and I can't moan about our 'tough day filming' when we think about what sits on Dave's shoulders.
Previous free climbing attempts failed;
utterly massive cliff - it's hard for the eye to register the scale;
fantastically hard rock climbing on pimples of rock most people could hardly see, let alone stand on or hang off;
potential for high wind and driving rain;
oh yes, and a cleared television schedule just for you - a whole day of expensive live high definition broadcasting - requiring you to find a line and to climb it.
No pressure then.... I'll stick to the features.
