As described in previous blogs, I’m not brilliant with heights. So I’m having issues with my current location, halfway up a 50-metre Portuguese cliff. On the plus side, I’m in the capable hands of Francisco and João – my climbing instructors for the day – and the rope seems to be secured pretty well. But it’s taken an age to get this far up, I’ve hit a tricky spot and am starting to lose my nerve.
