Time is flying by and was really great to spend time with Di who is leading on Cho Oyu (6th highest mountain) and K2 (second highest mountain). Given that I’m going for Everest and Ronny is going for Llohtse it dawned us today that we are attempting 4 of the 6 highest mountains in the world between us over the coming months!
Great also to spend 4 days chatting trip prep, kit, tips and tricks. Di has been absolutely brilliant and has had a wealth of knowledge to share from her two decades taking on the biggest peaks and toughest routes. Di also had Ronny and I alternating lead up some nice gullies today to which was great final prep and day out.
Ronny and I are now sitting in the the pub (I think I’ve had about 20 pints of alcohol free Erdinger this week!) in the Cairngorm hotel waiting for the sleeper to arrive to get back to London and I think I’ll be sleeping well!
