Conquered! Brimham Rocks

24 February 2018:
I conquered Brimham Rocks!!! Not just following the easy paths, but off-roading, working out a route, climbing hills, & navigating the rocks - almost reached the top too! It did get a little TOO uneven for my chair at the very top, so decided not to risk it any further, but sooo happy we managed to make it THIS far! To give an idea, the highest point is 300 metres (984.25 feet), and we reached approximately 278 metres (912.07 feet)!

• This is with a regular motorised wheelchair (not an all-terrain wheelchair), with A LOT of help from my amazing friend (thank you!! 😁).

• On a safety note, I’d never tell anyone not to try anything; however, I would advise that you only try something like this if you have lots of experience driving your wheelchair and are able to accurately judge its balance, centre-of-gravity, & general limits on uneven terrain. Even then, it’s best to take one or two friends who are able to assist - they should be strong, sure-footed, good listeners, & trustworthy. It’s likely that without help you could get stuck, slip, or tip-over; we’ve all done it at some point, it’s part of learning - just always have a plan, practice in safer locations first, & know your limits.
