Inspiring Adventurers

One of the many privileges of our work is the opportunities we get to meet a whole range of adventurous people.  Some are widely known for their exploits while others are probably only known within their friendship circles.  Some may be ticking away at a modest level while others are pushing the boundaries of our sport.  Of course we need the pioneers and ground breakers but there is just as much inspiration to be found by that person you chat to in a pub or see running past your house when the snow is falling and everyone else has taken the easy option and is curled up by the fire.  There is inspiration everywhere.

At Peak Mountaineering we really hope, that alongside giving people skills, we play our small part in inspiring others.  Similarly, we rely just as much on the inspiration of others we meet along the way.  As a tribute we came up with the idea of celebrating this wealth of collective psyche and commitment that's out there in the climbing and mountaineering community. So, this new occasional series of blog posts is our homage to these inspiring adventurers and we really hope that, by sharing their sage advice,  you will feel both energised by their enthusiasm as well as gaining some ideas for your next adrenaline fix.  For each adventurer we'll write a short biography before asking them 5 questions to share some of their knowledge.......
