Widecombe Wall

We had yet another stunning day on Dartmoor yesterday. I met up with Joe after a days work walking on the moor to get the ropes out and try a route I hadn’t visited before at Chinkwell tor near Widecombe. The route “Widecombe Wall” turned out to be quite tricky in places, and not helped by the green lichen on the rock as it doesn’t get climbed too much.

North Wales Climbing/Scrambling/Mountaineering Course

I first met Alastair on Denali last year whilst on expedition. He was keen to meet up and focus on improving his technical skills in preparation for future Alpine and Expedition goals he has for the near-ish future. So last week we found ourselves in North Wales with an iffy forecast but plenty of enthusiasm and options for four days of scrambling and climbing. We went to a different venue each day gradually building on skills such as building belays, climbing technique and confidence. We culminated our training on the East face of Tryfan, one of the more spectacular mountains in North Wales.  We scrambled and climbed our way up a long route followed by a descent of a scramble to get us back to Heather terrace. We had timed the weather perfectly and were the only ones on the face, despite little Tryfan nearby being mobbed by climbers. It was a great four days, and I’m looking forward to meeting up with Alastair again in Scotland for some winter action! [nggallery...

It's that time of year.... the summer isn't far away and it's worth thinking about summer alpine plans early. Booking guides and huts are worth doing in advance! And that isn't a marketing ploy by the way :)
This year we have a few trips scheduled, including Mont Blanc (3 trips), Matterhorn and some lesser known peaks like the Domes du Miage.
Have a browse of the scheduled trips page - and give us a bell if you'd like to arrange a trip on different dates, we have a list of people who'd like to share some guided climbing adventures.

Another day of laps in the trees. Low angled slopes avoiding the avi hazard and trying to keep out of the wind. Pretty wild weather at the moment.

Superb weather and soft snow on the Vallee Blanche today. Even got some fresh tracks, although not shown on this video.
A pleasure to be skiing and guiding the white valley again 👍⛷
