kink? Much better word for it!

There have been lots of this same kind of challenge for different charities - Boots Across Scotland - for example, has also attempted this challenge. I don't know if any of them have ever succeeded in getting someone of the top of every Munro at the same time.

That's a large order that they are looking for. Possibly even dangerous as people may push on in bad weather just so they don't let the side down?

The Angry Corrie (TAC) is worth a look at if you like "alternative" hillwalking stuff. It's here: TAC

Boots Across Scotland
FoF is correct about the Boots "compleat" bag on a day. I was an observer a few years ago to ensure that the attempt was done properly. I was also a participant on another occasion for Boots - I failed to get to my allotted Munro due to a fresh fall of a few feet of snow - in June.
