Triglav, Slovenia

Does a silent video count as a walk report? One advantage is that no description of weather developments is needed, which although so important for the person doing the walk is perhaps a bit tedious for a third party to read through at home. But I should mention that I forgot to take gloves on this ...

Rochers de la Bade - Northern Alps

Very steep climb of 900 metres over 3km. Boiling hot. Most was shaded until we got onto the ridge. Real scrambling down the other side. https://farm1.staticflickr.com/639/20793030958_0bf423be91_k.jpg Rochers de la bade by john cummings , on Flickr https://farm1.staticflickr.com/601/20988525021_beb2f...

Kebnekaise - Top of Sweden

This is a beast of a hill. At 2106 metres it isn’t that high, but 1800 metres of ascent over 20km in 12 hours is enough for me. And it’s a mission just to get there, deep in the Arctic Circle . From Stockholm we took two metros, one train, one plane, two buses and one boat - and we walked 13km - to ...

Re: Aonach Eagach backwards

Thanks for the replies - really helpful.

I don't have any choice about the date so fingers crossed for the weather!

Aonach Eagach backwards

This summer I'm hoping to achieve what I've already failed to do twice - the Aonach Eagach ridge. All the route descriptions I've read go from East to West, finishing at the Clachaig Inn, but we will be doing it the other way round. Would this present any difficulties - is it harder going from West ...

"In the step of the bears" - Pointe de la Sambuy, Alps

We followed the route described in a book about trail running, and quickly discovered that we were never going to be trail runners. The author boastfully claimed that this could be run in 2hrs 30, although I'd be interested to see how fast he ran up the via ferrata which brings you to the top of the...

Re: Conditions in Arrochar?

Sorry I can't help you, but I would appreciate an answer to this too as I am heading up that way tomorrow and wondering if 'The Great Storm' that the BBC keep threatening us with might affect the southern highlands region.

Grand Ballon, Les Voges, France

Highest mountain in Les Voges.

Massive aviation radar thing on the top which looked like a Bond villain's liar.

And a great view of Les Voges and towards the Black Forest on a clear day (which it wasn't).

Mulhacen, Sierra Nevada, Spain

Mulhacen – highest peak in Spain (excluding Las Canarias) There are many routes up this mountain, but the one I took involved a degree of cheating - by driving up the dirt track from Caprileira, the second highest village in Spain. The track actually runs almost to the top of Mulhacen (it used to be...
