These five short videos tell the story...
It was probably about 3pm when he started working at this.
You may have noticed it's going a little darker...
(He's here somewhere - honest!)
By now, we had both head torches propped up on nearby rocks, angled to illuminate (ish) the boulder.
For this final video, one head torch had moved to his head. (Listen out for the sheep.)
These five are just a selection from the many videos I took, but at this point I gave up trying.
The attempts continued for the best part of another hour.
I enjoyed listening to the owls :)
Sad to say, he didn't manage to complete the problem that afternoon, but he came soooooo close.
He won't give up. I'm waiting for the text to say he's done it :)
What do you think - dedication or lunacy?
