12th August 2009 Youngest climber of a Two
Matthew Nuttall, aged two years and three months, has just ticked off Pike of
Blisco, making him probably the youngest person ever to complete the ascent of
a Two Thousander.
Starting from the Three Shire Stone at the summit of Wrynose Pass he walked up to Red Tarn and camped for the night. The following day he climbed to the summit of Pike of Blisco then, after lunch, walked down the ridge all the way back to Wrynose Pass.
The only assistance he received was being lifted over a couple of streams and having his hand held by various members of the accompanying party.
