Naked Ambition

Is That A Crevasse, Dear? Or A Crevice?

A UK couple are braving the elements by attempting to climb nearly 300 mountains - naked. The naturists, known only as Stuart and Karla, want to reach the peak of Scotland's 284 Munros, which are mountains more than 1000m high. So far, they've conquered 15 and record their progress - complete with photos of them naked and cold - on their own website.

FOOTNOTE: Hope they don’t get frostbite.

so if they require crampons for traction does that disqualify them as being naked?

Kimberly said...

What I'm wondering is whether or not shoes fall into their definition of "au naturel". Goodness.

Lynette said...

What a hoot! I cannot imagine climbing anything fully dressed--I'm more of a walker--much less naked.

Thanks so much for your kind comment at Portland (OR) Daily Photo on ABC Wednesday.

Sometimes the naked truth is more than I can bare. Guess that's one way to draw attention to their climb to the top.

Hi Lime,

Climbing equipment? Naaaha, we'll grant them that.

Keep smiling

Hi Kimberly,

Because footwear comes under the ambit of climbing necessities, we'll allow that, methinks!

Personally, I can't even imagine doing that with clothes on,(I'd prefer to stay on the ground, either walking or hiking) and they are naked? I suppose they are feeling very much one with the nature! I hope they don't have any accidents, yikes, imagine how skinned up they would become.
