In March 2011 Joe Beaumont fell off a mountain. He is very lucky to be alive. Joe sustained multiple injuries down one side of his body and lay in intensive care.
Thanks to the hard work of the Wasdale Mountain Rescue Team he was airlifted by the RAF Boulmer SaR team to hospital where he began his long journey towards recovery.
In September 2013, with a team of friends,he set off on his biggest challenge yet. Dom Bush was there capture every moment.
After cycling 600 miles, we knew that scaling Ben Nevis was just too far for someone unable to walk.
So now the frame is off and we return this June to set out what intended to do, climb Tower Ridge and summit the Ben.
Always the adventurer, Joe will cycle from his home near kendal on a standard road bike with a few alterations, some 300 miles.
Leaving Sunday 1st June
We expect to reach Fort William the following Friday and climb Ben Nevis on the weekend of the 7th June.
‘Please come cycle with me and make the journey far more enjoyable’
In the process we will be raising money for Mountain Rescue to whom Joe owes so much and BMC Access & Conservation Trust, a cause with particular significance to Joe.
We will be posting videos, photographs and updates on the ‘In the Frame’ FB page here – facebook.com/2013InTheFrame
