Rob Davies
: I have been very fortunate to have followed my passion for the outdoors since my early teenage years.  The desire to climb, hike, ski and explore has taken me to many amazing locations around the world. Some of my favourite climbs and destinations are:  Cuillan Ridge, Skye, Scotland, Rebuffat route, Aiguille du Midi, Chamonix, France, CMD Winter Traverse, Ben Nevis, Scotland, Aspettando Martino, Arco, Italy, Grand Grotto, Kalymnos, Greece, Chramove Steny, Czech Republic, Glendalough, Ireland.
