There’s a commonly held notion that mountains are somehow invincible; that you could throw 283,000,000 hand grenades at a mountain and it wouldn’t even scratch the paintwork (of your Ford Capri, which you’ve plonked down in the mountain visitors car park). This belief is absolute baloney.
Mountains are constantly changing. They’re as at risk to the changing geological structures of the earth as a Geordie lass’s hairspray-ridden hairdo is to spontaneously combusting on bonfire night. The world is changing all the time and, as Gandalf would say, if you don’t keep your feet there’s no telling where you might be swept off to.
