Nice one Petr. I’ve still got lingmell to do. It’s my final wainwright and trying to get a good weather window and a free weekend together is proving elusive :crazy:
Keep up the walk reports and videos there always great.
All the best for 2020 mate.

Hi Tony, thanks for your comment, glad you like it. :D
I fully understand your feelings about the time and weather, especially if need for an particular area, it makes it even harder :roll: That's one of the reasons I'm repeating too many hills I had already done ( the other is to do some hills again - with my daughter as it looks she loves the outdoor and mountains too :D ) and keeping the new hills waiting for the better weather - or at least visibility for some pics or videos...
Congratulations ! Great work, you have done almost all of them and I'm sure you will enjoy the final one in a great clear day :clap:
Maybe to see you again somewhere in Scotland or The Lakes or Snowdonia...? :wink:
All the Best to you too, keep walking and stay safe 8)
P.S. I'm not here too often nowadays, but here is my email if need: petrdakota@gmail.com
