The 6 classic North faces of the Alps

Eiger, Grandes Jorasses, Matterhorn, Piz Badile and the Dru done,  just the Tre Cima to do. It’s been a dream of mine for several years and now I have just 1 to go. Its been great climbing with different partners on each of these faces and has been a great adventure each time.

Machame route taking 7 days to ascend the mountain. 1 day attempt thwarted by authorities, but will try again another time.

Iran ski touring – Mount Damavand (5681m).

An incredible skiing and cultural experience. What a country with amazing and friendly people. Temperatures in winter get as low as -50’C.
