the welsh 3000s

  In preparation for Mont Blanc, a couple of friends and I decided to take on the Welsh 3000s challenge. In essence, that means climbing all 15 mountains in Wales over 3,000ft in under 24 hours, without using any transportation means.

not an ordinary morning

  Back at the end of July we headed to the little town of Kromidovo (near the border with Greece) to celebrate my buddy Metodi’s birthday.

i know a place where no cars go

  Going up to the Aiguille du Midi is truly a remarkable experience! Seen from down below in the valley, the 3,842m peak (which literally translates to “Needle of the South”) is a sight to behold 🙂     Below you will find the individual photos as well because they are worth seeing, This one …
