Alpinisme: Chronological Index

I try to get out. I try to climb. I try to ski. I try not to fall down. I succeed and fail variously. Here's a chronological index (most recent to past) of what I've gotten up to - mostly climbs, but some hiking, peak bagging and skiing - over the last several years. This is not an exhaustive list (which would be even more ponderous) and for that you have my embarassment and tiny ego to thank.

FOR SALE: I'm getting rid of loads of gear.
