The Sixty Steps were built by a Victorian era developer to give access to a lower street and pedestrian bridge across the River Kelvin here in Glasgow. A few years back, people in the neighborhood complained of the council not keeping the steps swept, etc., only to discover the steps are cooperatively owned by the owners of the flats in the tenements either side!
A very, very long term goal is to be able to start on the river path, run up the footpath/wide steps to street level and then up the Sixty Steps to the next road. This pic is looking up them the first time i found them. At the time, i couldn't climb them even at a trudge, without several pauses to, um, take in the view. While breathing very, very, deeply. Now i can dash up about 2/3, and complete the rest at a walk. And THEN pause to enjoy the view, with deep breathing exercises.
