What’s not to like about Chamonix or Cham as it is affectionately known and it holds plenty of good memories for me as a hard core mountain climbing and skiing base.

72 hours in the Jungfrau region

Some time, long ago, so the legend has it, a young lady from a nunnery above Interlaken ventured onto the hills and attracted the attention of an ogre living on a neighbouring hill. To protect the nun from the ogre a monk climbed the mountain between them to stand in its way. And so the names of the Jungfrau (young woman) Monch (monk) and Eiger (ogre) were born.

The organisers of Keswick Mountain Festival (KMF) have revealed a late addition to an already packed line up of events and attractions for this year’s event. New for 2018, the Blacks Air Display will see the AeroSPARX aerobatic stunt display team and the Osprey Skydiving team take to the skies above Derwentwater to entertain thousands of visitors gathered in Crow Park for the festival’s live music programme on 8 and 9 June.

Having already ticked 6 of the 7 required summits off in good time, the expedition’s goal to break the ‘7Summits’ world speed record was achieved in the early hours of this morning, when Steve Plain and Montane Athlete Jon Gupta summited Mount Everest a full 9 days ahead of the previous world record.
