I’m Alex, a 22 year old aspiring alpinist from the depths of rural England. After spending the last year climbing full time, I’ve inexplicably moved to London to take up a new job, but I find myself spending an unhealthy amount of my salary on escaping the city. Since visiting the Himalaya at the age of 16, climbing and alpinism have slowly been becoming a bigger and bigger part of my life.
I’m not a pro and I’m not a fearless mountain superman, I spend a lot of time in the mountains getting scared and feeling like a bit of a charlatan. This blog is something of an antidote to all the wad-blogs out there. This blog is for the everyman. The punter.
