In April this year it was announced that British mountaineer and Rab athlete Paul Ramsden would be honoured, along with his climbing partner Nick Bullock, with his fourth Piolet d’Or.

The award recognises significant ascents from the world of mountaineering with Paul and Nick one of two teams to receive the award in 2017. Their ascent of Nyainqentangla South East in Tibet tackled the mountain by an incredibly impressive line up its North Buttress in impeccable style despite very challenging weather conditions.

To mark the ascent, the Piolet d’Or committee commissioned the above profile of Paul and Nick which gives a fantastic insight into both of these unique characters and includes some striking footage from the climb itself.
