2001 Reviews:

John Barnard

My focus for 2001 was completion of the Munros and Tops for the second time. This was done with Lurg Mhor on 25 June and Ben Vorlich North Top on 21 October, while I completed the Murdos on 16 October with Stob an Duine Ruaidh. As far as Marilyns go, 2001 got off to a poor start with access closed due to the FMD epidemic. Trips to relatives and summer holidays in July and August was the first real start, with 20 of the hills in southern England and the west country bagged. Unfortunately I am still left with Carnmenellis in Cornwall as FMD 'No Entry' signs deterred us from risking a trespass on this hill. Another family holiday in late August and early September allowed me to complete a couple of sections in the Lake District. Activity then ceased until November when I realised my tally for the year would be somewhat lacking, so there was some frenetic activity on day excursions to Wales and Shropshire. My plan now is to focus on the Grahams, though by the end of 2001 my tally for these was only 26.
