Rachael Stone took part in the challenge in October 2016; this is what she had to say:

It was superb! A completely fabulous adventure full of fabulous people, and all for a wonderful cause. The organisers and safety team are second to none. It was a tiresome two days hiking but I am already looking for where I can sign up for next year. An all-round hoot!  Thank you for everything, was one of the best weekends!
