Quick news flash – Graham Nash completed a solo unsupported Ramsay in 23:29 in the very early hours of today (April 22nd). Huge respect given that there must still be a lot of snow up there. More details to follow once he’s recovered a bit. Legendary!

“I’ve just spoken with Graham – it was full winter conditions for him, icy and pretty exciting on some of the ridges at night and then soft snow and exhausting post-holing in the daytime. He saw 4 people all day.
I believe this is only the second sub-24 hour ‘winter’ Ramsay, which puts Graham in a pretty elite group!”
Graham puts it more modestly as “…an early spring round with winter conditions on the high tops. I had the added advantage of an extra 5 hours of daylight compared with an attempt in say February. Plus warmer temperatures.
It puts into perspective Jon Gay’s inspiring, legendary sub 24 hour true winter round 3 years ago.
I’m not sure I’m one of the elites, I was very lucky with the weather. The likes of Finlay Wild would have romped round very quickly.
I’ll write up a report and send on (even have a few photos!)”.
