The Next Adventure

“What’s next Squash?” are words that I often hear. Since returning from climbing Monte Rosa in the Aosta Valley in early September it’s a question I’ve been giving a very vague answer to and that’s because I can’t share all the details… yet! I’ve spent a few years wondering about a particular type of project […]
