Nick Bullock and Paul Ramsden: A team to be reckoned with, 4 kbBritish mountaineers Nick Bullock and Paul Ramsden have been awarded a Piolet d'Or for their first ascent of the North Buttress of Nyainqentangla South East in Tibet last Autumn.

Huge congratulations to Nick and Paul, well deserved!

Further congratulations are in order just for being able to pronounce 'Nyainqentangla'!

This is pretty astonishing, has anyone else won four? I'm guessing Mick Foweler has three, anyone else? How come we don't now more about Paul Ramsden, any chance of an interview? I'm interested to know what job he does, what sort of other climbing he does no more importantly given he's the same age, how he keeps going without being permanently knackered!

Cheers Michael, vegetarian gravy of course.

All the best

Thanks for that, answers some of the questions at least. I love the contrast between the interviewer and interviewee in that link.
