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.
