Family Christmas Outside Style

turnbull christmas crackIf ever proof were needed that Outside was born of a true love for climbing then one needs look no further than the Turnbull family Christmas snaps.
The indomitable owner of Britain's best mountain shops Dick Turnbull is the biggest proponent of climbing Christmas Crack HS at Stanage on Christmas day, every year, whatever the weather. Joined by his two sons Robert and James this year the Turnbulls turned out as is tradition to get their Christmas tick before they moved on to the pub. Judging from the look of things a fair few others had the same idea on the day with probably around 40 people climbing this Christmas classic.

One week later, come New Years Day and Dick was to be found on Ben Nevis snapping a photo of Frank Connell as they climbed Comb Gully Buttress IV 5.
