Andy Hodges

Ever since joining Cub Scouts as a boy in 1976 and learning about the outdoors, Andy Hodges has loved mountains. As a student he became a modern sports climber in France, while his summers were spent leading walking groups in the hills and mountains of the UK. A volunteer member of Mountain Rescue for 16 years, he has walked, climbed and cycled extensively in the Vanoise since discovering it for himself in 2004.
