About Alex Foxfield

Hello! I’m Alex. I am a Mountain Leader, writer and content creator based in Bristol. I love sharing my favourite hiking haunts and inspiring others to get out amongst them.I am passionate about the great outdoors of the UK and can regularly be found somewhere on a mountain. When I’m not hiking, running or climbing mountains, I’m usually daydreaming or sometimes writing about them. If I can't get to the high places, I make do with running the roads, paths and trails around the city. For more information take a look at my website.

      Lovely little walk with my daughter in tow! Glorious views across towards Sugar Loaf and a great little ridge!

    1. Gorgeous day spent hiking with Aku and mountain guide Peter Moser. A group of us industry types were testing Aku's V-Light Slope hiking boots. Wonderful introduction to the Dolomites.

    1. Evening jaunt up the wonderful Blencathra, one of my favourite mountains. The scramble up Halls Fell Ridge is always entertaining, the views from the summit are incredible and the run down Blease Fell is also great fun. Classic route.

    1. Bit nippy up Pen y Fan this morning for a great little run. MWIS reckoned it was -15 with the windchill and it was certainly rather Baltic once I hit the summits. My trusty @koraoutdoor Neema hat was deployed to keep my luggles warm.

    1. The final stage is also the easiest, with significantly less ascent to tackle, as you follow the long and glorious ridge containing High Spy, Maiden Moor and Catbells back towards Keswick. Expect lovely views down onto Derwent Water and across to the northern giants of Skiddaw and Blencathra.

    1. This is the most strenuous stage but probably the most spectacular, taking in some of Lakeland’s most iconic mountains, starting with the rugged Bowfell. This is followed by Esk Pike; Great End, the Scafell range’s abrupt northern termination and the highest point on the Traverse; Great Gable, arguably

    1. The second stage ups the ante, with almost 12 miles (20 km) to cover and a hefty dollop of elevation gain to conquer too. You ascend back onto the Coniston group and traverse Swirl How and Great Carrs, before dropping to the Wrynose Pass. You climb once more, taking in the summit of Cold Pike and the
