The Big Walks Club website was set up to record my mountain adventures and was originally
inspired by the Ken Wilson's wonderful Big Walks and Classic Climbs books. The site
will hopefully also inspire and help others enjoy their own mountain experiences.
The site provides information about expeditions being planned, as well as reports
and photographs from previous trips.
Trip Reports are posted on the website as they happen. Quick links to some of the
most popular pages on the site are given below :
Welcome to the Big Walks Club Website
Video films have been made of most of trips. These would help greatly in the planning
stage if you are thinking of repeating any expeditions and are produced very professionally.
If you would like a DVD please go to Trip Reports for details of how to get hold
A section giving Useful Links is provided for information on weather and routes.
Please leave a message on the contact page if you want any more information about
the routes we have completed or if you would like to join me in the Mountains. It's
great to hear from like minded souls.
Tour of the Oisans - the GR54
The GR 54 was completed in the first two weeks of September in fine style with 10
days of walking. The Kev Reynolds guide was followed but being able to wild camp
gave a bit more flexibility of where we stopped and camped each night. The route
goes through some spectacular mountain scenery and some nice villages. Never technically
challenging there is good level of exertion on each stage of the route. A great trip
and highly recommended for a quieter mountain trip. Trip report has been posted here.
The Munros are compleated !!!!!
The site is dedicated to the memory of my Dad, John Galsworthy, Group Scout Leader
of the 11th Warrington Troop and loving father, who gave me the skills to climb all
the mountains in my life
