Damian Hall

Damian Hall is an outdoor journalist who’s trekked many of the world’s famous and not-to-famous long-distance trails. He’s climbed volcanoes in South America, fallen down mountains in New Zealand and had his hiking boots stolen by a hungry possum in Australia.

 

He contributes regularly to outdoor and fitness publications and writes walking guides, including for the UK’s oldest and toughest National Trail, the Pennine Way. There’s more of this kind of self-aggrandizing trash at www.damianhall.info
