    A sad lose Heavy. A great climbing partner, all round good egg and snappy dresser!
    JC, full of fun, laughs & serious committment.
    He & I had some great times in the Alps. Storm bound on Dom de Gouter, after doing N West Face of Aig de Bionassey, we dug a snow hole and spent 2 nights at 4200M.
    Another time, 2 nights on Frendo Spur after taking a very direct route. The last bivvi was on a small ledge above the famous Ice Areté, with the lights of Chamonix some 10000ft directly below us.
    Yes we had some magic times. I knew JC was ill, we compared chemo notes, and tried to keep each other up and positive. He still managed to get to his music festivals, do his land yatching and in winter some ski touring.
    I will miss the texts we use to send each other – “Chatski?” The prelude to a good hr long phone chat.
    Rest in Peace John, a great bloke and wonderful mate.

    Please pass on my sympathies to JC’s family. I learned a lot from JC in my short time with KMRT, and he was always supportive of new troops.
