CHALLENGE TRAINING CHALLENGE
“The nimble and very lithe Bleck Cra”, according to a clearly disfunctional kernowclimber, (who incidentally avers that diamonds are not always a girl’s best friend - so.., you get my point), continues his trawl for hillwalkers aspiring to be super-hillwalkers. He now has takers in the book for dates in September and October. Who else is for this ride to Hell and back? Only those of us who would like to leave our fastest walking companions at the starting post. Only those who would like to get 40 winks before the others catch up. Only those who are filling the camera card while the rest can barely fill their gasping lungs.
The Cra is offering challenge walker training to anyone on the site for free gratis. Three hundred years on the hills, Count Cracula figures he can seriously improve the hillwalking capabilities of all walkers from Grade 2 upwards. This means you are in a better place to compete or just to survive a tough walk and be back for more.
Thirty years ago a young Cra was boo-ed off a Scottish ridge. A year later, the last thing his detractors saw of him was his heels. A year of committed training and a lifetime applying it taught him a range of so simple techniques: techniques easy to learn, easy to apply, and guaranteed to take chunks of your challenge finishing times.
Takers so far are Grade 1s and I should like lots more but I would also like some Grade 2s to give it a go – regular hillwalkers who enjoy a steady pace but think they are not up to something a bit more gruelling. Well you are.
For the shortest distance from A to B, contact Cra on douglasreid@utvinternet.com
Thanks Kclimber for that dodgy description; one that could well be applied to yourself but for a bit of training.

Robber's Pass Hill: Minor heathery lump. Overcivilised and underwhelming.
Collaborative entry Last edit by: simon3 6 days ago.
This oddly named hill is more a very minor heathery bump incorporated into the system of tracks laid out by the Wicklow Mountains National Park. It can be reached from any of the western car-parks...
