Russ attempting unnamed peak

Average Rating = 3.75/5 Russ attempting unnamed peak

The peak in the background we called S09 (Our ninth summit). As we attempted this next peak, the temperature plummeted so we aborted soon after this shot. The next day we moved down on to the glacier in the background and sat out a storm for three days.

Al and John on S09

Average Rating = 3.73/5 Al and John on S09

Lame name for a peak (S09) but this was our ninth summit. The temperature was dropping rapidly. We later were caught in a storm on the glacier in the background for three days. We resorted to reading the GPS manual after passsing round all the books we had. Have a look at another of my photos "Russ attempting unnamed peak" and this peak is the one in the middle distance in that shot (if you see what I mean)

This is a few days after we arrived at Rio Blanco base camp way back in 2000. The wind steadily picked up and this shot shows the snow blowing off the backside off Fitz Roy which was very impressive to see 'in the flesh'.

Popped up to the Lakes (UK) for a very cold weekend. We found a stream and followed it up some small pitches, along stream beds. The last short pitch we pulled over dropped us below a 40-50 foot icefall. This is John Terry, solo, in mid pitch viewed from the other side of the Gorge we had followed

Passing the time in Patagonia

Average Rating = 2.60/5 Passing the time in Patagonia

Whilst waiting for a break in the weather we wandered down from Rio Blanco base camp to Lago Piedras Blancas for a bit of excercise. Amongst the huge granite boulders we found some short bolted routes. (Well there was one bolt in the top) This shows Lou Costello on an unknown route just having fun. After this we captured some ice from the lake for the Gin and Tonics back at base camp (:

Taken from Torre Piaz

Average Rating = 3.57/5 Taken from Torre Piaz

Torre Piaz was our first rock climb in the Dolomites. We trekked over via the Santner Pass down to the Alberto hut. As a warm up we did Piaz and the exposure was mind-blowing. It is only a 60m route but we probably made 10 belays due to the exposure. From the 1 foot square summit we watched this group on Delago followed by a 50m free ab. We climbed Delago and it was a memorable route. 3-4 pitches on good rock, in the sun with superb views.

Poincenot & Fitzroy

Average Rating = 3.91/5 Poincenot & Fitzroy

We arrived at Rio Blanco base camp in February 2000 to glorious weather. Being new to Patagonia we did not take advantage of it and the weather deteriorated over the next three weeks. This was a shot from Lago de Los Tres on our second day. The best view we got. By the end of the week it was snowing and getting colder. Two days after this a Spanish climber was cleaning a route on Fitzroy and abseiled off his ropes falling around 200 feet. He survived with a broken leg and bruises !

Rignys Bjerg Arctic Eastern Greenland

Average Rating = 3.67/5 Rignys Bjerg Arctic Eastern Greenland

In 1998 we were lucky enough to visit an unexplored area of Arctic Eastern Greenland called Rignys Bjerg. This was our third camp after three days of storm during which we resorted to reading the GPS manual. The cliffs in the background are a good three hours skiing away. We found it very difficult to estimate scale in Greenland leading to some long days skiing.

Snow Falcon - Arctic Eastern Greenland

Average Rating = 3.50/5 Snow Falcon - Arctic Eastern Greenland

Back in 1998 we were lucky enough to be the first visitors to this part of Greenland (Rignys Bjerg). Just behing our first camp we noticed a superb snow gully. Like most things in Greenland we underestimated the size and ended up with a 10 pitch Grade 3 (Scottish). As we climbed we were watched by 2 Snow Falcons, hence the name.
