Welcome to All The Gear, No Idea - my own little corner of cyberspace.

Written more as a reminder to myself about what I've been up to over the last few years, you'll find a variety of hikes and scrambles that I've undertaken across England and Wales; as I attempt to climb all the English and Welsh Nuttalls -  the hills over 2,000ft in height.

I completed the Wainwrights in 2016 so you'll find every walk I did for each and every fell listed on this site and many of my hikes hosted on the excellent Mud and Routes.

We're currently living in Australia, so expect a little bit of Aussie bias for the next couple of years. We've been hiking the epic Bondi to Manly Walk so keep your eyes peeled for that!

Thanks for visiting :)
