Unfortunately, the "Royal Fudster" is going to have to cancel all his engagements for the forseeable future. Sorry guys. :cry:

I would be up for this. I've been threatening the wife that I would go up Snowden this year. Just haven't got round to it yet.

Warning - Old Thread Resurection.

I guess this event/activity did not happen (previous post was nigh on 3 years ago)

However, the reason for this post was to let you know that my sister walked to the summit and back yesterday - yes, in the snow and ice, with ice axes and crampons.

I've never known her attempt anything like this before, and was amazed to hear she was atempting it. Aparrently it was arranged as a 40th birthday/mid life crisis type of present by her fiends.

Anyway, I'm proud of my little sis (on the right)
