Big Wall Climbers

The wild bunch are world class big wall climbers and have found a soul mate in the Reverend Bob Shepton, a legend in the sailing and climbing world and still going strong in his 80th year!

Their 2010 trip to Greenland won them the coveted Piolet D'Or for putting up a number of leading edge routes in great style and a great team spirit that saw Bob included in the climbing award and the team included in one of the top sailing awards.

As we left the anchorage the following morning we saw Ben and Shaun 2/3rds the way up an intimidating new big wall route having started the climb at midnight following our night together on board Novara. Olivier and Nicolas were on another big wall within the anchorage. A remarkable and talented group of young men.
