Ben Lomond on a perfect winters day. We kayaked in overLoch Lomond and ascended pathless , roug, boggy terrain to reach Ben Lomonds Northern Shoulder. From here we headed into the quiet northern corrie and ascended high up onto The Ptarmigan Ridge. Never saw a sould until near the summit and eventually joined about thirty others on the summit. A diiferent way up! As always on Ben Lomond in these condition ice axe and crampons were essential. A fun adventure and a mirror lat Loch Lomond to kayak back across
Self-shot and edited whilst cycling around the world, this short film charts my winter journey into the Canadian Arctic as I completed my bike ride up the American continent. Compelled by Jack London’s assertion, that ‘any man who is a man can travel alone’, I sought an adventure of perfect solitude. Yet, as I came to realise, the harsh truths of travelling in such a formidable environment were a long way from the romantic images I’d held of this land. The Frozen Road is an honest reflection on my solo trip; of the wonder, terror and frustration I experienced when riding through the unforgiving emptiness of one of the world’s ‘last great wildernesses’.
