Many of you will now now have heard the shocking news that our good friend Simon Triger died on Mont Blanc last week, aged 31. Despite being a highly experience climber, Simon was unexpectedly caught out and trapped by a severe storm, and was unable to be rescued.
Simon was a rare and unique character. He never had a bad word to say against anyone, and seemed on a mission to spread positive energy into the world, and get the most possible out of his life, packed to the brim with non-stop outdoor adventures and experiences.
It is hard to imagine not seeing Simon again. His good humour and laughter always brightened up every club run, even in the depths of winter. Simon will be deeply missed by all who knew him.
