Simoburn - A Celebration of his Stamina
Now I always half fancied myself as a handy man for the campaigns, the "10 summits and 10 hours" outings, the marches across ranges, the endurance stuff. Which is not for everyone, I think those of us in it for the endurance test can be accused of not stopping enough to smell the roses, I like to think of it as hard exercise in the most wonderful surroundings.

But looking at Simoburn's tracks here, I am in awe. Some are pretty staggering, 40km plus days, 10-12 hour treks, 2 ranges together (Brandons and Central Dingle, Purple and the Reeks Circuit...including nipping out to bag Caher!).

I must sit down and read through all his contributions as in fairness I think he is setting new heights in the toughness stakes, and pushing the ranges of what might be considered "doable" a bit further out there.

Cnoc na Sleá: Not To Be Judged On Size
Aidy 5 days ago.
A small hill, but as it can form part of an extended walk, has some very steep sides, and has some of the best views in the country, it cannot be judged by size alone. I started at the car park at...
