UKClimbing.com's alpine gear reviewers, Jon Griffith and Will Sim, both based in Chamonix are always having lots of climbing fun whether it be clipping bolts in the sun (that's what they are doing this afternoon) or more seriously the alpine faces right on their doorstep.

Many readers will have noticed that last week Jon and Will did the Croz Spur (with the Slovenian start) on the Grandes Jorrases (see Jon's UKC Photo Gallery )
Will (19) and Jon (26) have lots of plans for this winter in the Alps and you will be seeing a lot of their gear reviews over the next few months at UKClimbing.com.
Jon will be giving gear from Patagonia, La Sportiva, Scarpa, Outdoor Research, Grivel, Petzl, Petzl Charlet, Black Diamond and Mammut a good testing out on the mountain. First up soon is a review of La Sportiva Batura's which Will wore on the Croz.
Jon edited this video over the last few days and got it uploaded this morning for us. Jon shoots both his still images and video on his Canon 5D.
