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.
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!
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.
de Neige des Ecrins, 4015m, Ecrins National Park
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...
