Wallis Grout-Brown Wallis Grout-Brown The creaking wooden ladder felt like it was going to break any second, but nothing was going to stop me from reaching the top. After a nerve-racking, steep hike with 3,000-metre drops right next to me, I was finally close. Even through the rain and the fog, the scene from the… Keep Reading
