    I've climbed five mountains this week!

    Three in the Cairngorms, Carn Taul, Sgor an Lochan Uaine and The Devils Point, and two nearer the west cost of Scotland near Loch Trieg, but I can't remember how to spell their names. This brings my total for Munro's bagged to 12, and I've now climbed everything in the British Isles over 4000ft which has bragging rights!

    Anyone else climbed anything? Scotland or Everest, make your claims here!

    Cader Idris - beautiful walk, and not too difificult as I remember.

    Other than that though, just hills.

    Man how I want to get back to Britain and cl,imb a mountain. I'm thinking I might just have to waste my time and do the Pennine Way.



    I wish.

    Anyone got a spare week or two?

    Ooooh, bragging rights eh?

    Done Huyani Potosi in Bolivia, which at 6088m is JUST under 20,000 feet. But I jumped on the top, so maybe I got there

    Done Chacaltya (sp?) at about 5,700m (home of the world's highest ski resort fact fans) and biked down it, an utterly utterly amazing experience. Down 1000 meters in 20mins, just switchback after switchback...

    And some of the passes on the Inca Trial in Peru were stunning, carrying a full rucksack over them was totally knackering though!

    I think I've shown these pics off before on here, but have a look:

    When I get my proper website done I'll stick some more up.
