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 :
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 of copies.
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.
Plans have started for another John Muir Trail expedition for the Summer of 2020. 2019 will see a practice trek in John Muir wilderness style to get some practice in for the event. The planned trip will be to walk the Alta Via 1 in the Italian Dolomites during September. It is a walk of about 8 days so about the same as the John Muir stages.
Tour of the Oisans -
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.
