What amazing photos and a great trip.

It's inspiring to see you on such an adventure - great use of space in the caddy.

Tent is cool too

Living the dream!
The rear windows in your caddy look really tidy, much better than most I've seen in a swb.

Thanks Simon. It's the second time I've had her down to the Alps, so good for it! I know a lot of other climbers who have T5's, but the convenience of the Caddy for the drive, parking, Itallian roads etc is fantastic, where the T5 would be too big, and yet, with a bit of clever storage space, you can get everything 3-4 people need for two weeks away in there, and easily accessible.

Some great summits reached on both trips too...not just a road trip - the Caddy is just the means of transport, the climbing is the real goal :)

Brilliant pics...reminds me of my youth when I was a bit braver! Reduced to Munro bagging now but still get out to Cham once a year for for some snowboarding action. :D
Also going to Wengen in September for a weeks walking.
