Hi Everyone,

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

Stuart

The Height of Ben Nevis is 1345m, I expect it to take me around 14hrs including rests.

I think my mate's kids go to that school. I've stuck a few quid in the pot for you.

Thanks Tom, 11 routes isn't very impressive

Just read the article, that sounds incredibly arduous! I Completed the 1350m solo yesterday, 118 seperate routes at popular end, it took me 14hrs 22min, not bad but I wasn't rushing, really happy about it but absolutely blown today!

Had the support of a couple of very good friends, which helped hugely. I've decided to call it the Ben Everest Challenge in honour of a lovely boy called Isaac who was watching and supporting at Stanage yesterday and kept mistakign Ben Everest for Ben Nevis
