LLANWRDA, Wales, Jan. 31 (UPI) -- A Welsh mother famous for climbing cliff faces with her toddler strapped to her back says safety is always on her mind.

Menna Pritchard, 26, of Llanwrda, whose blog about climbing has courted questions about the safety of her 2-year-old daughter, Ffion, during the climbs, said she has been scaling cliffs with the girl in tow since she was 4 months old, the Western Mail, Cardiff, Wales, reported Tuesday.

We see people up skiing all the time with infants in front-packs and back-packs. All I can think is "what is you fall?". I don't think I would ever do an extreme sport with my helpless child strapped to me...

Well, I was trying to be fair-minded... until I saw a picture of the conditions in which "safety is always on her mind"...

this Mom says life is full of risk----sure it is but why take UN NECESSARY RISKS--especially with your children? I think she may have a screw lose.

What an idiot.... she says that her daughter encourages her by saying "up mommy up".

Guess what, my daughter says "go go go" when I'm driving the car at both green and red lights.

Seriously, I hope the father is a better parent and obtains custody.

Yes. Crazy.
And I'd like this mom to explain how she fed her when she was a few months old. And how she changes diapers while on the cliff. The little one sure has had rash at some point...
