The Adventure Show: 26 February

Main feature from the Strathpuffer 2007 mountain bike race. Bits that interested me were:

"The Spot" - with Hostile Habitats, editors Mark Wrightham, Nick Kempe and author Stuart Benn, and how the many authors helped "put together a more holistic picture of the mountain environment".

"plants...tell you something about the processes taking place in taking the pulse of the mountain environment."

"Wild Life" discussed red deer, ptarmigan and mountain hare whilst being out in the snow in Creag Meagaidh National Nature Reserve.

"The Spot" - up in the hills, ice climbing, with organisers of the Fort William Mountain Festival. There they discussed the festival, and also gave advice to competitors.

"The Beta" - Chris Townsend discusses smocks and jackets for wearing during the Scottish winter. Also, gave advice on what to look for when buying.
