A great cause but I’m not sure it’s a sensible idea tbh...assuming the guy has/gets permission in the first place! The bloke intends to summit Mt Blanc whilst carrying a concept 2 rowing machine for charity! A bit more serious than his foray up Ben Nevis...or am I just being soft?

Genuine question

Why would he need permission to carry something up Mt blanc?

Perhaps from his psychiatrist?.

When will people find useful things to do while they gather sponsorship.

I'd be more inclined to support him if he was collecting litter from the route or some other productive use of his time and energy.

The mind boggles. Why not carry a fridge or a prophylactic vending machine, or an Austin Seven - I'm sure that hasn't been done before.

Is raising over 10,000 single handedly (so far) for a charity that helps veterans struggling with ptsd and in many cases suicidal and raises awareness alongside not a productive use of his time and energy?

Because he will row the height of mt blanc when he gets there, has that been done before?

Indeed. I think it's more a sad reflection on society that these sort of stunts are necessary to grab attention than on the guy doing it - assuming he has the capabilities to make it a realistic challenge without becoming someone else's burden of course.

Bon courage!

It’ll be interesting to see what the Mayor of St Gervais says about this. As we know, he’s becoming more and more strict about ‘access’ to the Gouter route and I don’t recall seeing a Concept rower on the required kit list that the gendarmes have been given to check!
