Ali and Lay share a passion – a passion for mountains. Indeed we met on a mountaineering skills course at Plas y Brenin, the British National Mountain Centre, in North Wales.
We live in the lowlands on the south coast of England but whenever we can we head for the hills of Snowdonia, the Lake District or Scotland.
Ali and Lay are novice Alpinists. For many years we have enjoyed summer hillwalking in the UK but we have recently ventured into winter mountaineering in Scotland and the European Alps.
