“WE’VE SIGNED UP!”

Trail (UK) - - Base Camp -

Dy­lan Owens, aged 10, has made a fab­u­lous start to his 2017 Ever­est Any­where chal­lenge. He is pic­tured out­side the Priest’s Hole on Dove Crag af­ter as­cend­ing Hart­sop above How and be­fore com­plet­ing three fur­ther Wain­wrights on the day.

Dad, Cliff Owens, says: “I’m very proud of Dy­lan’s hik­ing achieve­ments – he’s now com­pleted 44 Wain­wrights in to­tal and he’s ex­cel­lent com­pany on the walks and never com­plains, even af­ter eight or nine hours of walk­ing. He’s been busy so far this year re­vis­ing for his up­com­ing mock SATs, but in 2016 he com­pleted seven walks cov­er­ing 24 Wain­wrights and the to­tal as­cent, as recorded by my Ore­gon GPS, was 6778m. So we are very ex­cited about Trail’s new Ever­est Any­where chal­lenge.”
