World Wide First Ascents

Tom’s passion for trad, winter and alpine climbing leads him to big and inspiring mountain routes around the world, whilst still heading for UK sea cliffs and Scottish winter climbing in between.  He’s established first ascents in Alaska and the Himalaya.   Many will have heard of his second ascent of Latok 1 (7145m) in the Karakorum in August 2018, the first ascent from the north side, with Aleš ?esen and Luka Stražar, via 3/4 of the coveted 'impossible ridge', widely recognised as one of the last major unclimbed lines in high-altitude mountaineering.
