Alan Hinkes has completed climbing all of the highest peaks in each of the counties in England. He had set himself a 10 day time limit for this feat. There were 39 peaks in all. In the end it took him only 1 week to complete all of them. He believes that he completed all of these climbs faster than anyone else has done before him.
This was a dream that he had been wanting to do since he was young. He said,”
“Living in North Yorkshire I spend so much of my free time climbing the area so the chance to set a record like this one in my own backyard was a challenge I couldn’t pass up.”
He climbed K2 in 1995 after several attempts.
