Peter H:
Are these cheating-garmin ones or elevation correction ones?

Peter H:
Ps solid first climb though

Mine are the elevation correction ones. So just upload directly to AP and it does the elevation changing thing.

If you want to be anal about it Peter, and I know how much you love being anal, then you can get the o-map out and count the contours if you like

Got me thinking about a Dumyat Mile High Club :-)

you've now got me thinking about Lose Hill/Win Hill/Heroes/Sandy Heys/Kinder Low etc. etc.

Re. Dumyat Mile High Club - my record so far is 1050m ( although I did cheat and run the same climb 5 times. Will try this session sometime though - 1609m climbing is 4-5 climbs depending on where one starts. Definitely doable

Might wait a few (infinite) years before doing a solo Everest. Must be able to find a Kinder triple dozen. I was thinking of other hills for this and Win came to mind. Maybe I'll try and do one a year. Might have to pop over to Dumyat next year then.

The rules for cycling everesting say same climb only. It's effectively the bike version of a BG, lasting 15+h, but with plenty of recovery on the downs.
