Man looking towards mountain peak

As a student many moons ago, I was encouraged to undertake the Duke of Edinburgh Award. One of the challenges was to climb a mountain. I don't think that Mt Ngungun in the Glasshouse Mountains of Queensland at 253m is up there with the most challenging, but I'll never exceed my personal best. Have you?

Lovin' it!
Considering I live in the Rocky Mountains, you would think I would have climbed a mountain or two, but I don't think I have. I've hiked to a lot of glaciers, and done a lot of uphill climbs, but I don't think I've officially reached a peek yet.
I've never climbed a mountain.
It's never too late.

Wow! That would have been exciting. I'm old enough to remember the conquest of Everest. It was a headliner for weeks.

Grand Tetons in the US were pretty steep ;)
Never ever climbed a mountain in my life...lol...lol...lol.
In Australia -it was one in the South of Western Australia.
Overseas it was the highest mountain in europe but of course I didnt actually climb it which was your question!

I went in some sort of contraption and only mucked about in the snow near the top.

We dont have many to climb in Western Australia.
I almost climbed one in Victoria the one time I went skiing in the snow as I could not stay on those chair lifts where you put the thing between your legs and it automatically goes up -for some reason I would fall off.
Needless to say I didnt go skiing tiwce.

Had the same problem when I first began skiing in Canada many moons ago. I fell into a very deep snowdrift and had to be rescued. How embarrassing when I saw many students from the school I was teaching at, some as young as 4, scooting down the slopes without stocks even.
by grann
LOL grann -I also had to be rescued because the one time I did get to the top I was too petrified to go back down and lift was out of order to go down.....AND I had had a series of lessons..
