The Fan Dance

The Fan Dance

Sat, May 21, 2011

Harrison's Daddy and good friend Chris are attempting to complete the well known 'Fan Dance' (well known in the Army anyway!) This is a major event used in various parts of selection processes in the British Army, including 22 SAS, P Company for the Parachute Regiment and various infantry promotion cadres.

This involves scaling Pen-y-Fan mountain in the Brecon Beacons, Wales.

They are attempting to complete the 15 mile round trip on the 4000ft mountain carrying 35lb bergens and weapon, within 5 hours navigating through 3 check points enroute. If anyone knows Lee - once is not enough and they are attempting to repeat this again the following day!

They are doing this courtesy of  XNRG Extreme Energy who have kindly donated the second day free of charge.
