Winter Fun in Scotland's Cairngorms National Park by Alex Metcalfe

As a rookie mountaineer with big ambitions to climb big peaks I noticed there was a rather large gap on my mountaineering resume! So I packed my bags and headed to Cairngorms National Park, Scotland to learn the necessary winter skills with Glenmore Lodge for my upcoming trip to the Alps this summer.  

The pictures above are a brief collage of my fun in the mountains.

Lead Climbing in Northern Wales by Alex Metcalfe

I recently returned from a gnarly lead climbing session at Castle Inn Quarry, Northern Wales, in preparation for my trip to the Alps in July. Learning to lead and strip the routes presented a fresh set of challenges that the whole group enjoyed. Check out the pictures below!
