Mammoth journey began with a step

HUMBLE TO the core Ian McKeever described how he faced each challenge on the website, Online Rising.

' The journey of 1,000 miles begins with a single step. Aged 29 before I'd even climbed Ireland's most famous hill the iconic Sugar loaf, even then it was done reluctantly! 13 years on it's hard to imagine my life without such graceful pleasures.

'Eight years ago I moved down to Lough Dan to train for the challenges, physical and metaphorical that lay ahead

' There are two contentions that I know now to be true.

1. Learn to climb Camaderry hill properly and you can climb any mountain in the worl

2. When perspective leaves you and your mind is clouded beyond reason, sit patiently on the Camaderry deer line ridge look around you, breathe and you'll feel very differently about everything. That ridge-line is where I get my perspective on all that matters.

'Every challenge I face, have ever faced is undertaken by training within a 10 mile radius of that very ridgeline.'
