One hand on the wall. I can feel wet lichen against my palm and small streams of water between my fingers. Rough cold surfaces interrupted now and then by a finer, abrasive strip of mortar. For each tentative step the hand steals forward a foot or two. I never let the fingertips lose contact with the stone. The wall is my mooring. The rest is a pitch-black void, and my footfalls set off desolate rattling echoes as they push pebbles aside.
