Alan Hinkes summits all of counties highest mountains in England

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.
