I climbed Pico Aneto as a member of 'Pyrenean Ram', a 15 man British Army expedition hiking through the Pyrenees. It was a fantastic climb. We left Benasque in the early hours of the morning, and started the ascent. We arrived somewhere around midday, with a spectacular view as a reward. As we started up the glacier, we looked up and saw two guys parachute off the top, and within about 15 minutes, they had arrived at the base of the mountain. I am sure they were watched by all on the mountain side with much envy! Thanks, JT, for all your inspiration and leadership, and the chance to be part of an awesome team.
