It was New Year’s Eve 2022, when I set off to finish the Everest Anywhere Challenge.
I had only 5% left and today was the last day of the year to finish it!
I decided I would go and bag Green Crag near Hardknott in the Lake District, as I was spending the New Year in the Lake District.
The weather was poor, with driving rain, freezing cold winds at the top, and clagged-out views.
It was more about the challenge than anything else.

Everest Anywhere Challenge
It is incredible to think that in 2022 I hiked up a total of 8848m in elevation. The challenge requires you to climb 8848m in a year simply by adding up each hike you do.
As Live For the Outdoors say:
- Do it for the CHALLENGE
- Do it for your HEALTH
- Do it for your HAPPINESS
Well, I did it for all three!
I decided on New year’s Day 2022 that I would do it and I wasn’t going to be beaten.
Some of the big hikes in 2022 that helped me hike up 8848m were:
- Kinder scout x 3 = 1500m
- Pen Y Fan = 1100m
- Red Pike = 900m
- Model Hebog = 900m
- Mount Snowdon = 950m
- Higher Shelf Stones = 500m
- Green Crag = 500m
Added to these, were lots of smaller hikes that all contributed.
It just takes a little persistence and a log book (or excel spreadsheet if you’re a geek like me!)
It just goes to show that you really can hike up Mount Everest Anywhere 😀
If you’ve completed the Everest Anywhere Challenge, I’d love to hear about your experience.
