Topic - Should we have a British Piolet D'Or?

Tom, UKC News Editor - on 14 Sep 2005
House and Anderson succeed on an alpine-style new route on Nanga Parbat's Rupal Face. But will they win the Piolet D'Or for it?

In the October issue of Climb magazine, BMC Chief Officer, Dave Turnbull, seems to be calling for a British version of the Piolet D'Or - a prize for the 'best' mountaineering ascent of the year.

In the same issue of Climb, Stevie Haston says the French award has become a complete joke, with the Russians' fixed rope siege of Jannu's North Face winning last year.

The Americans have the 'Golden Piton' Award.

Should we have a British version?
