Grünstein Acrobatics

Short rest day after the Großglockner the day before. Ross managed to find all the best feet-off rests. I've done this Klettersteig before, but this time we finished up the Gipfelwand (summit wall). Not recommended if you didn’t enjoy the earlier pitches...

Großglockner, Hohe Tauern
Apr 7th 2018


Ross and Clay flew from England for a quick hit ski mountaineering weekend and with perfect conditions forecast we drove south to Kals for a two day ascent of the Großglockner.

On day 1 we skinned up to the Stüdlhütte. The next morning we crossed the glacier and joined the armies of mountaineers bidding for the summit. The view down was stunning; the Großglockner is the most prominent peak in the Alps after Mont Blanc and the spread of peaks below was magical. You can see almost 240km from the summit. Less magical was the final 150m summit ridge - if you’re looking for space, solitude and a clear head in the mountains avoid the Großglockner on a bluebird spring morning.

Kitzsteinhorn mist

Snow and poor visibility across the whole of Austria so we did our best to ski the X routes at Kitzsteinhorn.

Grisedale, Lake District
Dec 29th 2017

A snowy hike

A welcome, but unexpectedly heavy dump of snow slowed the Lake District traffic to a gentle, sliding crawl. Getting to Grisedale seemed like a safe option so we went on a quick wintery horseshoe up to Great Rigg and down via Rydal Fell. Sadly, nobody could be bet into a double-pointer dip in Alcock Tarn.

Gouther Crags, Lake District

Shivering at Gouther Crag

Just because it’s late December and 1.5° at the car, it doesn’t mean that you can’t go trad climbing. En route to a New Year's week in the Lake District, I persuaded Clay to squeeze in a quick climb. After getting lost three times on the approach, Clay bravely dodged the hot aches and ice patches to follow me up the easiest route of the crag.
