About Us

My photo
Ed is a fireman, Ad is a doctor, and we are both mad keen climbers. Ed is a rock warrior, and a great all rounder too, Ad is steady at all disciplines, but particularly loves the hardships of winter climbing and mountaineering. He keeps fit on the bike and at his local wall, 'Red Point' climbing centre ( http://www.redpointclimbingcentre.co.uk/ ). We are both originally from Shrewsbury, where the nearest we have to a climbing club is the shop 'Highsports'. The owner, Stuart is a famous climber and mountaineer, and keeps us locals psyched with a great shop, a great website ( http://www.highsports.co.uk/ ) and a great winter lecture series. Mad for it!

  1. Looking great mate. Fantastic picture of the cliff top airport. Looks as interesting as the Gizo airport but substantially higher. Keep the updates coming. Tom

    1. The beard is looking good Ad. I felt rough at 3774m in the Tirol last week so can't imagine what 8,000m is going to feel like!
