Alpinist

An alpinist is a climber of high mountains (generally, but not neccessarily the Alps). I'm not an alpinist.

I don't know if there's a word for climbers of not very high mountains, only when it's sunny, the path doesn't look too treacherous and regular stops are permitted, but if there is, I'm one of them.

You and me both, Patsy! The true climbers probably have a word for us that's not repeatable in polite company.

That would be a traipsist

They're probably glad we stick within our limits and they don't have to rescue us, Lizy.

Patsy said...

Ah, yes, Mac - I'm one of them!

Don't think I could deal with the heights and distance any more, so I'll join you and Mac with being a traipist. :-)

Yep, another traipist here.

Alp...Alpinist...climbing high mountains...that does make sense. :)

Patsy said...

Very wise, Carol.

Perhaps we can all get together for a joiny traipse, Suzy?

Patsy said...

It does, Chrys.

Patsy said...

Joint, I meant! Though if we collect people as we go, it could be joiny as well.
