Topic - Sponsored blindfolded hill walk

nightmonkeyuk - on 24 Aug 2010
Hi, we're attempting to organise a sponsored [blindfolded] hill-climb of Skiddaw in aid of Action for Blind and Keswick Mountain Rescue. We're thinking of heading up the main tourist path from Laterigg car park after shuttling people up from Keswick centre. People taking part will be escorted up by a partner of their choice who will act as they "eyes". All people going up will be effectivly herded up as one group to ensure safety and minimise stragglers. Total people attempting it should be no more than 20.
Anyone have any experience of attempting to organise such and event? Hints or tips? Thoughts? Im doing the usual risk assessment of the event (yawn). We've also consulted with MR and also the National Park who are all ok with this.
