Simon Hicks

Sitting on the glacier, having just summited Gran Paradiso, staring out over hundreds of miles of pristine alpine peaks on a perfectly clear day, the warm sun on my face, sipping from a hip flask of whisky, my son by my side, surrounded by new friends. It was a truly special moment that will live with me forever.

Ben Mallet

A very special trip, made up of new friends and incredible views. The feeling of summiting a 4000m mountain is incredible something that normal day to day life doesn't give you.

Jake Hicks

Over the course of this trip I learned more about myself than I expected, I pushed myself beyond what I thought would be my limits, even when each footstep was as painful as the last. Weeping on the side of a mountain whilst looking over the most stunning view of the alps wasn't somewhere I thought I'd find myself in 2020, but I'm so glad I did. 10/10.
