So that's me done for 2011; an epic year in Scotland; and a fun way to finish... I've nothing to say about this hill; we couldn't see anything; as usual the Monsters made it all worthwhile... And fun...

So, all that's left to do is tot up the year...

49 Trips to the hills...

950.19 km covered...

60688m of ascent - NASA consider space to be 80km - 3/4 of the way there ;) and a whisper over 200,000 feet! That's why my legs hurt...

106 Munros...

1 Corbett...

And 3 Hewitts...

Enjoy - hope y'all had a good Christmas, and best wishes for 2012... Happy New Year to you all...

And see you about in the hills... Watch out for these Yetis...!!

49 trips to the hills...
Over 100 Munros...
in one year...

:shock: Wow!

What's your secret?!

A busy year for me, but still 6 days walking in a year is a poor show.
