Today I told my Dad what I wanted to do more than anything was to sleep on a mountain. And as Hedgehope was the local hill I wanted to climb the most I told my dad this was the one it had to be.
Hedgehope is 714 metres but has a very exposed summit, which was fine when we first got there, but my night fall the wind increased at such a rate that it was only the weight of the two of us that kept it down firmly on the ground.
We were both awake at 5 am so we decided to take tent down and pack up and view the sunrise on the way down the mountain. It was great to see 360 degrees all around with light s from Newcastle to Edinburgh.
Go home for 7am and Climbed into bed with mummy for a cuddle and a warm up.
