HIGH TIME
Just a note – that I have been offering technique training for challenge and competitive hillwalking free to members of this site. Not many have taken it up but those who have, have all benefitted, some wonderfully – and two, I estimate, have taken the basic techniques and are now applying them with their own take on it, from all reports, with monumental success. Two of my favourite people in any case, so a Win/Win.
The thing is based on competitive hillwalking techniques but is in no way extreme. Students so far have in the main been midlevel B walkers.
If you might be interested and want to know more, get me through the messaging service on this site.
Now a bit of help please. Mountainviewer, the mercurial mist-sprite msmurty, pressed me into providing some training of late.
She runs on high octane fuel – marathons, self-defence and stuff – so I felt a bit inadequate laying down the law about challenge hillwalking. I gave in and now she is making noises that the thing works but kinda doesn’t believe it.
After a few hours training she edged me on Commedagh in the Mournes at under 12 mins from Brandy Pad track to the summit. In my book, that is pretty impressive. Any fast movers on this site please could you just echo that sentiment.
She is heading for her first Ireland Challenge Walk – the Mournes 7X7s in August – and I think could use the support.
Thanks.
