Spyke sets new record for climbing all the Munros

Starting on Sunday 25th April 2010 with Ben More on Mull, Stephen Pyke (aka Spyke) set himself the challenge of climbing all Scotland's 3,000 ft hills, better known as the Munros, in a continuous round under his own steam - on foot, by bike and paddling a kayak.

On 3rd June, just 39 days 9 hours and 6 minutes later, Spyke touched the summit cairn on Ben Hope in Sutherland to complete the fastest round of the Munros. The previous record was 48 days 12 hours set by Charlie Campbell in 2000.

Spyke is keen that his journey through the Highlands can inspire and encourage people to join the John Muir Trust – the UK’s leading wild lands charity. Please take time to read more about the JMT and even if you decide not to join you can support their valuable work by donating to the Trust at the following Just Giving Page.

Day 9 (cont')

Spyke, Digby Harris and Mike Nelson arrived safely in Glen Doll at 22.00 hrs, were duly filled with nourishment and quickly retired to a cool bed, ready to tackle Driesh, Mayar and the rest of the hills East of Glenshee.

Happy Birthday Spyke.
I wish I could give you warmer weather but the cold doesn't seem to be slowing you down.

Hope you've lots of birthday cake stashed in the van ;o)
