OK, If you come out here and spend the weekend, (Arrive friday night leave sunday night)
and if you do this lets say 6 out of 12 months you should be able to get 3 to 5 peaks a trip thus to complete all 46 it would take about 9 to 15 trips :)
Now I'm an old man I was 42 when I decided to do them and 48 when I finished, all of you are younger than me so lets get going!!

I wish I could, but its unpossible with my work (no vacation). My friend did all 46 in a year and a half, and did another half of them in winter. Now thats impressive!

When I decided to set out on a journey to become a 46er I knew it would take about 10 years. Ive already got 4, so I need to step it up to 5 a year. :D

Impressive indeed,

Time is of no essence
what matters is you enjoyed all aspects of the trips and the people you were with, as in nature good things come with time and age.
It took me 6 years could I have done them quicker “most defiantly” but three of us started and decided we would not do any new peaks without the others. One guy runs his own business thus getting dates we all could do was tough, so he bowed out. Mark and stuck it out and did them all together with many friends joining us on some.
