August 10th 2019 – Cadair Idris, Snowdonia

What a great way to spend the early hours of my birthday - out in driving rain, high winds and poor visibility on Cadair Idris with staff from https://www.challengecentral.co.uk/. A 9pm start, 3am finish. Quite a few tools came out of the ‘navigational toolbox’ last night and it was a double waterproofs and headtorch by the knees kind of evening!

It was very wet for a while but spirits weren’t dampened and everyone had a great day!

July 5th 2019 – Mallerstang, Upper Eden Valley, Yorkshire Dales

Fantastic walk today, leading for TeamWalking.co.uk. The 23 mile Mallerstang Yomp follows the watershed of the Upper Eden Valley and includes all the fells and mountains that surround it including the mysterious Nine Standards Rigg, High Seat, Gregory Chapel, Swarth Fell and Wild Boar Fell. A fantastic walk with a great group. We completed in 10h 45m.

June 1st 2019 – Lake District

Working in the Lakes with for www.mountain-walks.co.uk walking their 'Derwent Water Challenge' - a complete full circuit of Derwent Water and the surrounding fells. A great day was had by all.

May 29 2019 - Isle of Arran

A mountain adventure on Arran today walking The Sannox Horseshoe.

A classic route, involving quite a bit of scrambling. It makes a circuit of the mountains surrounding Glen Sannox. An enjoyable scramble to start with up Cioch na h-Oighe (“The Bastion”) before descending to the Saddle. Then a steep climb up to the dramatic peak of Cir Mhor. Then across to the granite tors of Caisteal Abhail before further scrambling led down to the “Witches' Step”, which I bypassed before enjoying a ridge walk down and back to the car. Unfortunately, the weather deteriorated as the day went on but that just meant I had the mountains to myself all day!
