I am attempting to climb Everest (8848m)within lockdown constraints by climbing my local mountain Ben Ledi (755m)12 times. I aim to do it in 15 hours of ascent.
By taking on this challenge this winter I will improve my fitness, and hopefully give my supporters the opportunity to contribute to the fantastic work of Strathcarron.


I completed my challenge on 1 December 2020 when I reached 8931m in 12 climbs between 11 Oct and 1 Dec. My total ascent time was 14 hrs and 41 minutes. I'm sure there's a young fellow hill runner who could smash that time. Challenge??

With thanks to Jane Barlow for taking these photographs on Christmas Day
