Alpine environments are some of the last places on earth where you can let your imagination go wild. When I do, I conjure up off-the-wall routes, activities or activity combinations which seem to some to be eccentric. Perhaps they are, but as I see it, the only limits on what should be possible are the ones that you yourself impose.

For example, why not climb a peak and then paraglide down? You’ll get a great view of the route you have just climbed! Or why not travel to the other side of the world so that you can climb on a beach, and then spend your afternoons scuba-diving?

These ideas may seem extravagant, but I can assure you that they are worth it. Do you have any ideas you want to share? I can’t wait to hear them…
