A days climbing with Alan Richard Mchardy at Leysin.

Going well for a young 76 year old, age is just an illusion he says!

Nice views from the Arete Des Cosmiques

It is outstanding around here, new snow makes it feels that winter its back.

Arete des Cosmiques - Chamonix, Mont Blanc

Amazing Chamonix!

Climbing with Richard

Richard Mchardy, going well for a man in his 70's! It is a great honour to get the chance to spend time with him.

Chamonix in the spring time

Oh, I have been a bit lazy about posting photos and keeping the blog up to date. As always and fortunately for me the mountains have been kind and  I have been very active... Maybe I am back to posting again.....Busy guiding and climbing and I am taking bookings of private mountain guiding and rock climbing:  Please simply email me at

Aonach Beag with Andy

Ace day, outstandingly nice views. We did a new wee route today but it was easy, there is sent on the crags already and the ice all so drippy, not adhering or simply not there, even the turf was wet....

My bets pal in the world, Dr Andy Nisbet.
