Base Camp

Martin Moran developed a love of the mountains from an early age and his passion for climbing would soon see him scaling some of the greatest faces of the Alps including the North Face of the Eiger.

Martin first met Joy, aged 18, working summer jobs in an outdoor shop in Newcastle, they were inseparable from word go and married just one year later.

After Martin completed a Geography degree at Cambridge, he and Joy would move to Sheffield where Martin embarked on a career as a Chartered Accountant. 

With a shared love of the active outdoor lifestyle, spending all their weekends away climbing in the Peak District and Wales, it was in the winter of 1984-85 Martin & Joy left the city life behind in pursuit of a bigger dream....
