TGO Challenge 2023

The TGO Challenge has seen many entries on these pages. Just look at the numerous labels on the right hand side. This year's event is fairly imminent - it starts from 11 May - and almost 300 different routes have been scrutinised and commented upon by the 20 or so vetters, of whom I am one.

The image above shows a few of the routes that I've vetted. None stray very far north of Montrose, and although timings may vary due to people starting on different days, places like Aviemore, Braemar and Tarfside look as if they will be pretty busy.

I'm hoping to be fit enough to take part, and Sue will be nearby and enjoying a Munro bagging holiday - and helping on Control if needed. My route* from Torridon to Newtonhill is very much the northern line of those shown.

This posting is to celebrate the end of the vetting process, which lasts from November to March, after which Sue and I can disappear off to the south coast for a week. Hopefully my new phone will cope with a few mobile blogging entries.

* withdrawn shortly before the event, due to knee problems.
