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 decade, you'll find a variety of hikes and scrambles that I've undertaken across the UK and Australia; as I attempt to climb all the English and Welsh Nuttalls -  the hills over 609m in height (2,000ft in old money).

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.

As we're currently living in Australia, you can expect a bit of Aussie bias for the next few years.

Thanks for visiting.
