About

Welcome to No Head For Heights, a little blog about running, walking, adventuring and occassional real ale drinking.

Why the name No Head for Heights?

I don’t have a proper fear of heights but I am certainly not a big fan of them either. Whilst I enjoy advenutures in the great outdoors you won’t find me traversing ridges, getting too close to edges or looking down too often.

The idea for the name popped into my head during a walk up Snowdon.  I reached the top, climbed up the steps to the summit and got a bit wobbly at the very top. I exclaimed in a moment of fear that I really don’t have a head for heights, not ideal for someone who enjoys mountains.
