Everyday Adventurer Gary Hodgson – 3 peaks challenge

I had 6 folk with me at the weekend on their 3 Peaks Challenge event.

We had a nice dry day on Ben Nevis with strong winds and cloud on top. Scafell Pike, in the dark up and down, had very poor visability in low cloud and some drizzle. Even needed to get the map and compass out at one point. Never seen so many big groups on there.

We thought we’d cracked it and were going to get 3 dry mountains when we reached Snowdonia as there was still blue skies above. Our hopes were dashed though as soon as we set off from Pen-y-Pass the rain came on and stayed on all through. Strong winds on top and the cafe wasn’t open so miserable on the summit.

Well done all the guys and especialy Siruna, the only female in the group in a mini bus full of blokes!  The team did a cracking time of 23 hours and 54 mins. May well be the final 3 Peaks for me this summer. Now anyone fancy a  challenge for a 3 peaks in winter?
