Experienced hill walker, rock climber, mountain biker and general outdoor enthusiast.

I grew up in North Wales and spent lots of my early years walking in the hills of Snowdonia. I know all of the mountains of this area well and have climbed all the major peaks. Also spend time in the Lake District, Scotland and the Peak District.

Been rock climbing for around 5 years. I do Trad, Sport and bouldering both indoors and out.

Competed in the UK National Championships on Mountain Bikes at a Junior level, though this was many years ago!

I'm a member of the British Mountaineering Council

I also think it's important to donate to Mountain Rescue (one day they'll pick you up off the mountain because you did something stupid, support them!)

You should probably look at this question outdoors.stackexchange.com/questions/6574/…. I think this answer is more relevant there?

comment How much heat is lost though your head?
turns out this has been answered rather fluently on Skeptics: Do we lose most of our body heat through our heads?

Yes I'm being thick Pythagoras' therom is a^2 + b^2 = c^2. I thought it was a^2 + b^2 = c

so my grasp of pythagoras is.....erm...rusty. Sum the hypotenuse is equal to the sum of the square of the other two sides. Shouldn't that be 10^2 + 1^2? 100 + 1 = 101Km. I feel I'm probably missing something/being thick?

Without a more definitive answer, I think the answer might be why not?! :)
