The Antarctica trip has been the recipient of The Lyon Equipment Award and a Mountaineering Council of Scotland Grant. As I’m sure you know; Lyon Equipment are the distributor of high end mountaineering kit; including Beal ropes and Petzl. They’ve been generous supporters of our trips in the past; and they have also sponsored our events…. The MC of S has also consistently supported this adventure and it would be not have been possible without them backing us financially.

I spent most of the past month attempting to organise sponsorship. The fish aren’t biting – YET! But we’re already about two thirds of the way there; thanks to some generous supporters from behind the scenes!

I’ve been getting back into training (three sessions of climbing per week!) and there was light in the sky at 8pm last week. This summer is gonna be a scorcher!
