Expedition to climb the Napes Needle

On 17th  October 2003 three Tricounis, Richard  Stockwell, David Clode and Peter Leigh repeated, in their 60th year, an ascent of the Napes Needle, Great Gable, that they  first climbed at the age of 17.  A decent  bottle of champagne was consumed, by  way of celebration, shortly afterwards! This unique climb is not difficult, but it’s great fun! More photos of this event can be seen in Joyce Clode’s collection.
