Skinny dipping

The joy of free range naturism is not restricted to hill-walking. Mountains provide clean fresh water for skinny dipping in rock pools. A quick dip in a rock pool after returning from a summit invigorates and refreshes. But they also prove a worthwhile visit in their own right.

Rock pools can be rather tricky sometimes. Not only can the water be much colder, often because it was melting snow a few hours ago, but also because wet rocks are slippery and there can be many sharp edges hidden underneath the gushing water. This can be especially difficult when the water is flowing quite fast. We often end up doing more scrambling in rock pools than on the actual mountains.
