Last summer I wondered if you would do a half Everest, I guess that wasn't a big enough challenge.

Cheers Frank, I think I will do one of those before the BIG day.

Also I’m curious now. If that wasn’t the BIG day, what is the BIG day going to look like?!

An outside Everest takes a lot longer, possibly up to 20 hours. 74 times up Boxhill.

Would be a lot simpler to just do 2x this beastie:

Might be a problem to travel to at the moment and I don't fancy cycling at that altitude but does look like an epic climb.

There’s a couple of Hawaiian ones as well on the same website that look pretty special. As you say though getting up the gradients at 4,000m+ is... not trivial(!)
