Advanced Dartmoor Navigation Course

The Last couple of weeks have seen me up on the moors with Barney doing an advanced navigation course. Barney, who has come over from Spain for a month, has his sites set on joining the Royal Marines as a Young Officer a big undertaking.

Vent du Dragon – a nice bit of mixed climbing

Had a superb climb on the north face of the Aiguille du Midi on Monday, with two fellow British Mountain Guides, Rob Jarvis and Andy Perkins. “Vent du Dragon” a good short mixed climb accessed by abseil.

South West moorland leader training course

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 :)

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.
