/ Solo Stanage Popular Height of Ben Nevis (1345m)
in 2 weeks, 10th August, I'll be doing a sponsored climb to raise money to rebuild the library at my sons school. I'll be climbing the height of Ben Nevis in 24hrs at Stanage Popular end Stanage Popular, its 113 seperate climbs starting around Martello Buttress Martello Buttress (VS 4c) and working down towards Heather Wall Heather Wall (VS 4c) via all the classic areas. The soloing is in order to save time. If any of you could sponsor me that would be greatly appreciated, the link to my just giving page is:
I'm aiming to raise £2000 though we actually need around £7000, so any and all help is massive boost.
Thanks so much
