Project Mountain Goat - Invitation
Many of you will be aware of Simon Byrne's efforts to climb the entire Vandeleur-Lynam and Arderin Lists in a year, a combined total of 454 hills. Well, 10 and a half months have passed since he began in early January and those of you who regularly consult the Summiteers Lists will have noted that a certain Simoburn has been jumping up those lists with a vengeance. For those that don't, as at today, he has completed 397 of the hills and has a mere 57 remaining. While 57 500m+ hills might represent a very good year for many, Simon has decided that these will be completed in the next 32 days and that he will finish with Mullaghcarn in the Sperrins on Saturday, December 27th.

This is a staggering achievement; to call it 'historic' could be stretching it, but we are not aware of anyone doing even either of the constituent lists in a year, let alone both [[Aargh! - sorry to pn_runner and friend who did do something like the VLs in a year!!]], so maybe 'historic' is the word. In addition Simon's quest has bequeathed a huge resource to MV, in that all his routes have been recorded on GPS and the resultant tracks all posted here and available to members. Beware though, Simon's idea of a 'walk' might be a tad ambitious for some; 9 of these tracks are over 40k and 13 have more that 2,000m of ascent!

Anyhow, in the 'Munro' tradition, a few of us hope to join Simon on Mullaghcarn for the final climb. Mullaghcarn is an easy walk up a mast road; 7k return with an ascent of 300m. We will begin from the B48 at H494 830; December 27th, meeting at 11am and starting out at 11.30am. Anyone who has a couple of hours to spare and wants to see history being made is welcome!
