I climbed Blencartha in May 2014 (for a 3rd time) to see the sunset and walk down at night under a starlit sky so I omitted it this time.
I have climbed Ben Nevis, Snowdon, Scarfell Pike, West Highland Way (7yrs), Cumbria Way (8yrs), Coast to Coast (9yrs), Dales Way (10 yrs), Pennine way 2012 and completed all 214 Wainwrights finishing them in 2011. This to me is the final piece of the Wainwright jigsaw but I will carry on walking discovering new routes and challenges all the time.
Thanks everyone who supported me last time but MRT really do need you to support them. Just look at all their rescues and hard work in August alone, some days Wasdale MRT were out 4 times.
