Everest in the Lakes?
Ok, so reading about walking the Bob Graham Round in Trail Magazine it got me thinking of a wee little challenge for next year...
Now the 'Round' is the equivalent of 42 hills, 72 miles and 27,000ft of ascent ( I might have to check that on some map software? ). Little old Everest ( location of my greatest ever outdoor toilet moment in 1996 ) is a smidgen over 29,000ft. So if I add in a couple more peaks, this 5 day stroll ( 4 nights ) would be the equivalent of climbing the tallest mountain in the world ( and that is from sea level, not high up a glacier in the Himalayas! ).
Been a while since I have stretched the legs for a few days out, so I think I fancy this quite a lot.
Now who is with me?
