Sponsor me for a new Scouting and community centre
I'm a qualified climbing instructor, a husband and a father of two. I have an innate love for the outdoors, which stems from going to Scouts as a boy. Seeing the benefits the outdoors has on people makes me all the more determined to raise money and awareness of the importance of the Scouts, which will hopefully instill a love within these kids later on in life.
We all long for the outside, knowingly or unknowingly. It is good for the soul and very grounding.
Rope Solo climb El Capitan (3000ft; 10-14 days)
Just to explain, rope soloing means, climbing by yourself, with a rope. The way the mechanics work, is that each pitch (or section of a climb around 120 feet) will be climbed with the safety of a rope. Once at the top of the pitch, one would need to abseil down, then climb back up the rope to retrieve the protection placed, then several haul bags with 10-14 days-worth of food and water supply (plus sleeping bag, portaledge, stove, extra equipment, a few extra clothes and any luxury items I could not live without, i.e. coffee) will need to be hauled up to the top of the pitch. This process will be repeated 30 times to get to the top.
So my estimated time to climb all the way to the top would be 10-14 days, this means eating, sleeping, toileting, etc... plus spending that amount of time by myself.
