What is your role at George Fisher?

I’m lucky enough to be one of the store supervisors.

Tell us about your fave thing to do in the outdoors?

From a very young age I’ve been coming to the Lakes, ticking off the Wainwrights with a group of friends and family. I also love exploring this incredible landscape on my mountain bike, which can be quite rewarding and a real adrenaline rush! In the winter I love to get out snowboarding as much as the bank balance allows.

What piece of kit can’t you live without?
My Altberg Mallerstang boots have been the most reliable to date; six years old and still going strong!

What is your favourite place in the Lake District?
Some of my fondest recent memories have been in Wasdale, specifically scrambling up Yewbarrow after a long day ticking off its big brothers Red Pike, Kirk Fell and Great Gable. I think that valley in particular is one of the most dramatic in the Lakes.

What was your last adventure?
My last big adventure was two years in Canada, specifically British Columbia and Alberta. I enjoyed two winter seasons, a biking season and loads of travelling in between, sleeping in the back of my Izuzu Rodeo to keep away from the bears, wolves and anything else that was higher in the food chain. A notable adventure would be hiking to Pingston Lake in BC, after a five-hour drive into the unknown you really get a different perspective on things when you are exposed to somewhere that wild.

What is your next adventure?
I’ve just moved to the Lakes and am in the process of completing all the Wainwrights. However, my next big adventure that’s in the pipeline would have to be Japan. I’ve wanted to get out there for a while now, as one of my big ambitions is to climb up Mt Yotei, Hokkaido and snowboard in the volcano’s crater. Let’s hope it stays dormant!
