A man is missing in North Wales: his name is Gerry Coyle, he is 65 years of age and is wearing a green fleece, green trousers and a wide brimmed hat with a camoflage pattern. It is also thought that he was carrying photography equipment at the time but this is probably in a bag or rucksack. He has been missing since Thursday 25th (25/10/12) If you think you can help the police in their search for Gerry please call North Wales Police on 101 or crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. 

Unfortunately Gerry has yet to be found and concerns are growing as no new evidence of any sort has been found.

The annual Kendal Mountain Festival is always a place to find contrasts from the outdoor world. The biggest event of its type worldwide, it’s the main social event for outdoor enthusiasts in the UK. 

Known for its strong base in climbing and mountaineering, it also manages to surprise with the unexpected; and this year is no different. This November ‘Kendal’ draws in many amazing personalities, from BBC TV adventurer Paul Rose to Olympic triathlon medalists Alistair and Jonathan Brownlee.
Highlights this year include the KEEN Wild Water Session, an exclusive mix of the best paddlesport action, from wild river running to remote sea kayak expeditions, this year featuring top new films plus KEEN athlete Adrian Durrant. From Lucan, Co Dublin, Adrian is one of Ireland’s top paddlers. Oh, and there’s free beer on offer as well…

Well, here at Mountain Hikes UK, we have just got our hands on a copy courtesy of our friends at Calton Hill. Plus, we just received news that a guide to the Cotswold Way is out on the 05/10/12. Heres what we thought and some more information on the new Cotswold Way app...
