Anyway, here's mine.
It's not all sitting in front of a computer at UKC, or being on the phone, or visiting outdoor companies, sometimes I actually get out. It's not been a bad year: Mallorca, Spain, Skye, Arran, the Peak, Pembroke, NW Scotland, the Lakes, Yorkshire, North Wales, Norfolk...yes Norfolk. A highlight was the Oetztal Alps in Austria on a trip organised by Adidas Eyewear to promote their new alpine sunglasses/goggles, the Terrex Pro. A big thanks to Ben Ashlin and Martine Melki-Neumüller at Adidas Eyewear for the invite.
Wildspitze, 3770 m, is the second highest mountain in Austria and is situated in the Oeztal Alps in the North Tirol (Grossglockner at 3798 meters is the highest). We caught a cable car up from Vent then hiked up to the Breslauer Huette at 2365m. Here the assembled outdoor journalists from all over Europe (about 30 of us) were treated to a hearty meal and a slide show by the acclaimed alpinist Robert Jasper (www.robert-jasper.de). Alpinists Robert Jasper, Leo Houlding, Tim Emmett, and Matt Helliker have all been involved in the development of the new Adidas alpine sunglasses/goggles. We will have more on the new Terrex Pro later this month.
An early start saw us slogging up a glacier and a steep gully to the ridge that led to the summit. It was a grand day out, moderate in alpine difficulty, but excellent fun. Hope you like my photographs of the day.
