Outstanding young Scottish climber Greg Boswell talks about his life in the mountains … and one particular lucky escape.

Kindly sponsored by Tontine Hotel, Peebles

Since Greg Boswell left school at 15 he’s been busy chasing the best (and worst) winter climbing conditions around the globe. Over the past decade he’s been to some amazing places and climbed some breathtaking routes, but not all adventures go to plan. Greg talks about how things can go so right in the mountains, and – following a recent high-profile incident with a bear – how they can also go so very wrong!
