An Caisteal & Beinn a' Chroin, Crainlarich
Munro Bagging in the depths of winter. We had freezing temperatures, crisp snow and soaring blue skies. A perfect day.

Pic du Glacier d'Arsine, 3368m, Ecrins National Park
My first Alpine Route, beginning with a journey up the Glacier Blanc and ending with a tremendous scramble along a dragon's-back ridge high above the Glacier d'Arsine. A little bit of everything!

The Gambit Climb, Clogwyn y Person, Llanberis
A real adventure – we had to find it first! Five excellent pitches, followed by a hair-raising descent down the Clogwyn y Person Arete.

 

LEAST FAVOURITE:
Dome de Neige des Ecrins, 4015m, Ecrins National Park
A five-hour hike in with a huge pack, in 90 degrees of heat, followed by 3 hrs sleep in the bivouac from hell, only to find we'd lost a pair of Glacier Specs on the way. Oh well, pack it all out again...
