Brian and Aileen Evans, both now retired, have enjoyed a lifetime's love of the outdoors. They have climbed, walked, skied and camped in many parts of Europe and North America, yet always returns to the Lake District, which has a special place in their affections. They have both always enjoyed adventure sports including pot-holing, wild-water canoeing, skiing and alpine mountaineering. They still particularly enjoy rock climbing in all its forms, from long adventurous climbs where route-finding skills are necessary to single-pitch bolted sports climbs in the Mediterranean sun. At home in Lancashire with their collie, Meg, they enjoy painting, gardening and planning the next adventurous trip.
