  • 3 Peaks – more details on tap…

    Got more of an idea about next weekend’s adventure, thought I’d share it…

    Myself and ‘Ray’ will do all the driving, covering about 1500 miles in the mini bus, with a team of 6 guys doing all the walking/climbing.

    We leave Rochester early on Friday morning, heading for a YHA near the Nevis range, hope to go for a big Pasta fuel up before bed 🙂

    We’ll get up at dawn’s crack Saturday for the guys to climb Ben Nevis at 6am, once they’re off I’ll head out on the bike to do Fort William’s XC loops for a few hours, which should be great. I’ve never ridden in Scotland, so that’s a tick in the box.

    They should return about 11am when we’ll drive to Cumbria as fast as the minibus let’s us, with luck they’ll start Scafell Pike about 3-4pm. If I’m up to it, I’ll go for another ride, as it’ll be 4-5 hours before they’re back again.

    Hopefull they’ll have no issues & we should leave for Snowdonia about 8-9pm Saturday, so they’ll start up Snowdon around 2am for another 4-5 hour slog finishing about 6am the following day. We’ll try n sleep while they climb Snowdon, as it’ll be a quick blast home as soon as they get back.

    Might book the Monday off actually 🙂
