As each month goes by we will add the height achieved that month to the chart. This chart shows the ‘Height Required’ line to follow assuming we manage to achieve 2171 metres per month. Each month the ‘Height Gained’ will be lengthened to represent our current position.
Height Required = 4342metres Height Gained = 5525 metres
January was a good start to the year with a total height gain of 2158 metres. Whilst this is 13 metres short of the ideal it is not too far off the line to be of any concern – famous last words!!!!
My plan for February is to achieve 2378 metres with the possibility of extending this to 3147 metres. Well as the final walk of February 2017 has been completed I can reveal that the height for this month is 3367 metres giving a total to date of 5525 metres. This is great news as I have caught up the shortfall from last month and I am now 1183 metres ahead of schedule.
