A Few Words: I love this site. The photographs from all over the world are such a great resource and inspiration. I started hillwalking in the UK Lake District,and Scotland, now other mountains are a draw too. Many years of Swiss trips with Easy alpine routes,Spanish Pyranees, Via ferrata in Italy and Switzerland, and lots of scrambles in England Wales and Scotland. I'm loving the mountain environment. The airy places that produce a feeling of exploration and wonderment, Self challenge and reward. My normal mountain day though, is a scramble in the Lake District or an easy winter gully. Highest peak = Kilimanjaro 5895m May 2008 - Highest Climb in Europe = Finsteraarhorn 4274m Coldest outing = Cairn Gorm -15c -70c wind chill - Highest bivi = 8,500ft side of Schreckhorn. .
Thank God for His creation.
