Hiking Ben Nevis is no small feat. There are always tales of people trying to casually wander up the highest peak in Great Britain, only to find themselves stranded in a blizzard in just a t-shirt, wondering what they’ve got themselves into.
The guy that tried to walk up Ben Nevis in flip flops springs to mind.
“I was that tit all proper climbers talk about”
Well, 28 year-old Sarah Albone just joined this list of silly hikers after she attempted climbing the 4,411ft peak in shorts, trainers and carrying a selfie stick. She was found by two climbers, soaked and suffering from hypothermia.
She was on a mountain biking trip in Scotland when she spontaneously decided to climb the mountain alone without proper equipment. The hikers that found her called her attempt “ridiculous” and said she could have died.
