Adventure; an unusual and exciting or daring experience

Montane Ambassador Nick morris talks us through what adventure means to him, and why everyone can benefit from it. Walking along the ridgeline of Beinn Alligin in the Scottish Highlands in a world of adventure, discovery, my ice axe in one hand steadying myself against the icy breeze and my crampons piercing the snow underfoot.  I track the ridge moving up the ascent to the summit, feeling my heart race as my heavy legs power me up the crisp white untouched blanket of snow towards clear skies and vast views....

JAYSON CAVILL: MONTANE LAKELAND 50 WINNER 2019 REPORT
