Sir Christian John Storey Bonington was 75 yesterday (born 6 August 1934 in Hampstead, London).

A belated Happy Birthday from us all - (everyone is on holiday here at UKC and I was out the office).

Chris is still at it, he's just had a trip cragging in Lofoten then rushed off to China on Berghaus business.

Next year sees him on a celebratory trek to Annapurna to commemorate the 50th anniversary of his, Richard Grant's and Sherpa Ang Nyima's first ascent of Annapurna II (7937 metres) in 1960.
