So very true!
I have done quite a bit of mountain climbing and there is only ONE thing that counts - experience! You can have all the bits of paper in the world but they mean so little compared to doing it for real. There is far too much emphasis these days on bits of paper!
I am always puzzled as to why people have to go on a course to learn this or that when they could learn from experience instead - all of the worlds best climbers are self taught - it comes down to instinct I suppose.
Either that or I am just too bloody minded to be taught anything!
