More than 20 years after first setting eyes on the peak and noting it as a potential objective, Mick Fowler, with Paul Ramsden, has succeeded in making the first ascent of the north east face of Hagshu. Regular climbing partners Fowler and Ramsden completed the unclimbed face of the 6,515m mountain in the East Kishtwar region of the Indian Himalaya, before traversing it and descending by the south east ridge. The expedition was supported by Berghaus and the Mount Everest Foundation.

Ray Mears does survival, Ran Fiennes does long cold walks, Kenton Cool does Everest summits and Chris Townsend does backpacking and wild camping - that's just the order of things. There are names that become synonymous with particular types of adventure and Chris Townsend is one of them. Multi award winning author, respected journalist and photgrapher, Chris has become an institution in the outdoor world. From President of the Mountaineering Council of Scotland to recently appointed Hill Walking Ambassador for the British Mountaineering Council he's been at the heart of the British outdoor community for a generation. Two years ago he got together with then rising star of the outdoor film makng world, Terry Abraham, to bring a small part of his accumulated knowledge and experience to the big screen in The Cairngorms in Winter with Chris Townsend and the rest, as they say, is history. Backpacking in the Lake District with Chris Townsend is not so much a follow up to The Cairngorms in Winter as a spin off, following Chris on a three day route back in the Lake District where he first followed his love of walking onto the hills.
