A dip in the Club Journals – 1984: Haute Route by John Richardson

In May [sorry one day late as it’s June 1st!], we go back to 1984 and this Journal covers the two years 1984/5. I have chosen the article written by  John Richardson describing the traverse of the classic Haute Route on skis by members of the Club, which is still a greatly sought after route. John writes in his usual humorous and understated way as the team complete the classic traverse in five days [six being the usual allotted time], despite it not all going to plan! Extra days at the end allow for other adventures on skis, including peak bagging. Click here to read the article in full.

Below are a few photos from the Journal giving a flavour of the breadth of content:
