Story

Dear Friends

This is a pic of me on top of Shuttlinglow at Christmas 11; the weather was as bad as some of the weather I have experienced in the Lakes; very strong winds (we had to get down quick, so we did not get blown over); it was freezing and hail stones. SO YOU NEVER KNOW YOU MAY NEED MRT even in the Peak District.

I have climbed Ben Nevis, Snowdon, Scarfell Pike, West Highland Way (7yrs), Cumbria Way (8yrs), Coast to Coast (9yrs) and Dales Way (10 yrs).

I have now reached my target on the ground I have climbed all 214 Wainwrights, some I never want to re visit, Green Crag for example why! I have experienced all extremes of weather, snow, hail, strong winds, gales and scourching hot days to. My big bro Josh is heading towards completing his 100 Wainwright…….

I have many memories of my climbs, I still love the Newlands horseshoe (Catbells round to Robinson); Bowfell via Hells Gill; Pillar via waterfall; climbing the chinmey up Red Screes; sleeping on top of Cat Bells afetr watching Jubilee Beacon; Grisedale Tarn; Hevellyn all routes......the list is endless.....

In summer with my brother Josh I will complete the Pennine Way 266 miles long right down the spine of the Pennines...I will average 15+miles /day with 5 days of 20 miles one after another

I may not be the youngest to complete each of these challenges but I am heading towards to my goal to becoming a Mountain Leader/Guide and working for MRT.

So please sponsor me to raise funds for Buxton Mountain Rescue Team.
