Opposites attract. There isn’t a more appropriate statement to describe the unlikely yet formidable climbing partnership that is Nick Bullock and Tim Neill. They met on the mountains of Scotland in winter, and despite walking their own paths in the mountaineering world they are both drawn inexorably back there each winter. The fickle conditions that define Scottish winter climbing frequently lead to frustration, but the prospect of discovering an obscure gem presents an irresistible allure to them both.

If you are interested in learning more about Nick Bullock’s adventures, there is a great chance to meet and listen to Nick at UCD Mountaineering Club on 26th Feb 2016 as part of Irish Climbing Intervarsities. For more info and tickets click HERE.
