79 Peaks in 79 Weeks

Rowan Purrett set himself a unique Quest that really stretched him. He decided to climb 79 peaks in 79 weeks: a big job for an 11-year old who had never done much mountain climbing! He was inspired by the landscape surrounding his home in the Isle of Skye, and in the process learned to scramble, tackle snow and ice, and involved friends and family in his challenge. He also raised funds for children in Africa less fortunate than himself.
