Here's the bunch who made it to the top in April 2000. :D

In my report I said 8 got to the top - but it must have been at least 11 for one of us to have taken this pic. Some were in trainers and jeans (I know, I know - and I did lend out all my spare gear) but they were so keen and fit. Ah those were the days! :D

Lovely pics :D ! Most folk seem to save Chonzie for a dreich day in the winter - it looks much more inviting with a bit of sunshine.
Well done Moira :D - hope the ankle is properly better by now!
