I've known Brad for over 30 years and we've had many climbing adventures over those years. This picture was taken on the summit of the Portjenhorn back in about 1986.
We'd just done the Portjengrat (ridge) which maybe the best rock climb in the Wallis Alps, an area of mainly snow or mixed snow and rubbish rock climbs.
Brad hasn't been too well for a few years so I was delighted when he rang me to say he'd been on a sea kayaking course on Angelsey and has really enjoyed it. He came up to Scotland for a long weekend and we went up to Arisaig for some really laid back paddling.
