Good morning,
I got to the top of Snowdon and I think that means I walked up about 2247' 'cos I didn't start at sea level.

I wont be posting anymore heights as I live and train in Cambridge where railway bridges are counted as hills!

And the answer is - 13,719' to date - we're on our way, air starting to thin. All I have to contribute is a slight inclination around Sutton Park, B'ham on Saturday and then a big drag back home with the Club last night - hoping to do Offa's Orror on sunday to add another 1200'

Oh and hi Rich K - you're welcome to add Chiltern heights

So its 943 from RD (amazingly precise - how do you do it - fancy altimeter) and 585 approx from me (lovely run along the start of the Cotswold Way for an hour last night, back to car as just getting dark) - so thats 15,250'.

Enjoy the weekend!

I use a piece of software from anquet maps to plan routes. THe version I purchased cost £35 and covers the Welsh National Parks, which is handy as I live in the Brecon Beacons. The sell versions that cover the other national parks for the same price or for £120 you can get either the south of Britain or north of Britain. I comes with digital 1:50,000 OS map of the area covered. It allows you to plan a route and provides distance covered, min height, max height, total ascent, waypoints, route desrciptions, etc with compass bearings. show the profile of the route, showing all the ups and downs, efc. Routes can be downloaded to GPS, map of route printed off. As soon as OS release 1:25,000 maps digitally they will become available as well.

Richard - sounds a great piece of software - I shall have to have a look at it.

Yesterday - Offa's 'Orror at Tintern - not really that 'orrible compared to some I could mention, but a beautiful run on a splendid autumn morning. Supposedly 1,650 ascent, so that's now 18,700', give or take 2' - anyone any idea where this puts us up Everest? I presume Base Camp is behind us?
06/10/2003 at 17:08
Answered own question - yep, Base Camp is 17,600' so we're into the Khumbu Ice Fall - mind how you go out there...

I was really impressed until I realised everyone was posting in feet?

Anyway, my house is 75 m above sea level, and my run took my down to the sea and up again twice today, and I went a bit higher as well, so maybe that's 200m or 600 feet.

Phew! No wonder I'm knackered!

So I think that makes us on 19,300 feet
06/10/2003 at 20:50
I did Kinder Scout at weekend soI think thats about 1500ft so upto 20,800 ft
