Good to know she can 'step down'.

She seems to be a bit of a fake walker to me, so pleased she doesn't need a helicopter or other transport to make this step

I think Floella Benjamin was probably faker!

A 'fake walker'?

Who cares? She got a well fit nose. I would.

Goes out with a small packet of tissues in her pack, only with a film crew...

Funnily enough, I did a controlled and scientific survey of outdoor enthusiasts - well, more a straw poll of a few OM-ers - and on a scale of 1-10 La Bradbury scored an impressive 8/10 for being an irritating cow on't telly.

True; Milly is my witness

A similar srvey of ... er, just me actually... found that Charlie Borman got a massive 10/10 for being an utter wanker.

Make that 8/11 Skip, I'm with Kelvin on this subject.

Fair enough, Pink.  I would too (and it's not her nose that catches my eye). But she's still irritating on the box*.

* 'Box' as in telly not as in ...

The ironic thing is skip, if you did, (let's face it most of us would), her nose probably would catch your eye at some point!

I hope she doesn't drop them then! I bleddy hate people who drop tissues in the hills.

Anyway, have I missed something about Julia, did she use a helicopter instead of walk?

Something about her grates with me on telly.  Thought I'd only seen her on Wainrights so just googled her to see what fuss is about - hadn't realized it was the same annoying woman I'd seen on watchdog. Coincedently we went to same primary school.

Was she worth a go in primary school too Rosswm?
27/04/2012 at 00:47

I was a few years ahead of her - not there at the same time.   I fancied Nancy Sinatra & Mary Hopkins at the time anyway.

Those were the days my friend!
27/04/2012 at 00:59
& those boots were made for walking!

What Julia's site says:

"JULIA headed for Iceland to embark on the toughest walk of her life. Her challenge was to walk the 60 kilometres of Iceland's most famous hiking route, a trail that just happens to end at the unpronounceable volcano that brought air traffic across Europe to a standstill in 2010.

With the help of Icelandic mountain guide Hanna, Julia faces daunting mountain climbs, red hot lava fields, freezing river crossings, deadly clouds of sulphuric gas, swirling ash deserts and sinister Nordic ghost stories as she attempts to reach the huge volcanic crater at the centre of the Eyjafjallajökull glacier.
"

What Paddy said:

The 'Icelandic Walk' looked more like a truck ride in the rain, coupled with an elaborate plot to get onto Eyjafjallajökull by using a private helicopter charter, which simply wouldn't be an option for most people visiting Iceland.

Considering the struggles that walkers / ramblers went through to gain access to the hills, it amazes me how little sympathy some still have for mountain bikers and other hill users. This is definitely not all walkers, many are not at all bothered as I don't fly past startling people and always act with courtesy. However a select few still want exclusive rights to the fells. Unfortunately a few of these have said they are members of the ramblers association when I have had the odd altercation with them, leaving me with an unfair stereotypical view of the clubs members. I once pointed out the trespass and right to roam argument which totally fell on deaf ears.

Does Julia B use a helicopter to get her bike up a mountain too DM? She's tried climbing on TV too. Was one of those there news/current affairs lasses they got to try something,new outdoors. One did the birches in a sea kayak!!!

Innuendo alert!!!
