    Store: FORT WILLIAM

    Ben has been climbing for the last 40 years, from early days on Lakeland rock and Northumberland sandstone through to winter climbs in the Alps and Scotland, has climbed up to E3 on rock and grade VI on ice.

    Happiest now on long, sunny, rock climbs in the Dolomites and Bregaglia, or snowshoeing toward a remote rifugio with a great bar.

    Favourite Place/Resort:

    The Italian Brenta Dolomites for its towering limestone walls amidst stunning scenery and, of course, his own backyard of Ben Nevis.
