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.


America – Big walling – Half Dome.

Yosemite, the home of big wall climbing and the picture below of the most memorable pitch of climbing around ‘the thank god ledge’.


Broad Peak (8051m)

Climbing an 8000m peak with no oxygen or porters. A 6 week expedition to the Pakistan Karakoram. Amazing and remote place.
