Rockall

No, I have not been to Rockall, but it is on the list. One fellow who has is Nick Hancock. Unfortunately his attempt to set a record 60 day occupation of Rockall this year was just thwarted by heavy seas. See this link for an amazing video of the climb to the top of Rockall that he made in 2012.

On guard atop Rockall - 1971: MOD photo (Could it have been published on April 1, 1971?)

  1. Great photo - can't believe they hauled that guardsman's box up there. One of the most bizarre photos I've ever seen.

    1. It is indeed surreal. These guys are not your typical island-baggers.
