The Three Peaks Challenge

I feel a bit of a fraud posting this as my challenge but as you can see in the earlier post Adventure in June , I am officially the driver for my sister, brother-in-law and friends. It is a bit daunting as the driver as I have quite a responsibility of getting the walkers to their destination in a timely fashion, get them fed & watered and up and down the mountains. I have the lovely job of sitting back and watching them do the climbing but on the other hand. whilst they are resting, I am driving.

I am quite excited now as I have made the decision not to attempt Scafell Pike, it is a tad dangerous in the dark by myself , afterall, I am not experienced on that part of the world so will attempt an ascent of Snowdon during daylight.

I propose to run up the Miners Track and descend on the Pyg Track, not the most arduous of tracks but enough for an off the cuff mountain climb. Got all the kit but must get a survival bag as the last one was ruined whilst using it as a sled last winter ;-)

Can't wait, this is going to be fun.
