    Advice given to mountaineers/climbers is (if at all possible) to sit hugging your knees on a rope/rucksack or both with your feet off the floor, remove any metal gear (poles/rack/axes etc) and move as far away as safely possible.

    I've been on bleaklow with my hair standing on end before and I've also heard tales of static jumping around peoples climbing racks in the Alps.

    Gosh that sounds scary! Glad you're okay!

    I've just looked up Bleaklow as I'd never heard of it and it looks cool :)

    We are blessed in this country to have some gorgeous countryside and natural areas of beauty. For me there’s no better place to train that outside. It’s a passion I may of developed with a green lid but it’s one that it open to everyone.
    The key with getting out in fresh air is to make it something you like and something that you'll want to keep doing. We live in an age where we are surrounded by anxiety and stress. There are literally 100s of companies out there that offer quick-fix confidence boosts. But getting outside, seeing some awesome views is free.
