This was the moment when Michael Macloed and I completed the gruelling Everest-Tinto Challenge. It took two days, and by the time we were on the last ascent, pretty much everyone else – including the mountain rescue team – had gone home. Our legs were so sore we ended up walking down hill backwards! Still, we managed to summon the energy for a last mad dash to the top to finish it all off.
We did the challenge to raise money for two great charities, Wiston Lodge and Moffat Mountain Rescue. Our group raised over £500, but we are still short of our target – so if you’d like to sponsor us, please visit our Just Giving Page here, or text ERVS72 £5 (or £10 if you are feeling generous!) to 70070
