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.

Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

All donations would be great, please spread the word around your friends. JAMES 12
