    Hi Emma. I just watched the Ollie VS The Passo Valparola vid on GCN. What was clear in the video was your friendship and support while Ollie did his thing. Talking rubbish to him up a climb to distract his mind from negative thoughts, even pushing him to get him moving on his final asecent. You're an absolute legend Emma.

    Matthew O'Connor thanks. But i think it’s what anyone would have done given the chance! Huge effort by Ollie and it was pretty impressive to witness. I don’t think I really appreciated how hard everesting is until I saw how tough it was on his face. I was in awe of his suffering and his determination - a couple of laps was nothing in comparison !

    I watched that video too. Amazing effort and great support! Have thought about trying the Everesting challenge Emma?

    I’d watch that for sure! Maybe somewhere a bit more realistic for us hobbyists - Cragg Vale perhaps? I’ll come and bring tea and support!
