Mind you - its a loooooong way for 10 points? No winter bonus either as it was in their ‘summer’.:roll_eyes::vulcan_salute:t3::clap:t3::mountain_snow:

Still worth it! :slight_smile: It was relatively warm too :wink:

Absolutely. The points are irrelevant; the achievement is everything.

My 10 points from El Teide EA8/TF-001, 3718m, doesn’t really compare to my 10 points from the Ponderosa pair of Moel y Gamelin GW/NW-042, 578m & Cyrn-y-Brain GW/NW-043, 565m. The SOTA day in Wales had much more walking…

Belated congratulations on a tremendous accomplishment. I summited Aconcagua in 2017 and I can’t imagine the stamina it took to climb the mountain, work a pileup at the top and then make it back down! You are an inspiration to a new SOTA operator like myself.
