A quote for all those who enjoy a little adventure
Hidden by clouds – Fingers Ridge
Somewhere inside the clouds is the slippery and loose Fingers Ridge. If only we could see where.
Helvellyn and a dip in the Red Tarn
A wee walk climbing to Helvellyn twice with a swim in between. A good way to spend a sunny day – however, it is likely to be busy in the summer.
North Ridge of Tryfan
As the car crosses the Welsh border, I unfold my map. Lake District. Damn, wrong map. This one is going to be useless if I want to walk up Tryfan, a little 900m peak in North Wales.
On top of the UK – Ben Nevis
A promising forecast and an interesting hill is a powerful combination. It is time to walk up Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in the UK.
Busy and baffling Tongariro Crossing
20 kilometre Tongariro Alpine Crossing goes by quickly because the view is so great. In the end of the day, every single trekker is tired, happy and covered in dust.
Lapland – calming wilderness
It had been almost ten years since I was hiking in Lapland. Still, it feels like home.
Winter on Beinn Ghlas
It is Valentine's Day but I am not planning to fill the day with roses and pink hearts. Instead, I have pair of crampons and an ice axe in my pack back.
