We have 12 weeks to go before we set off on the Camino Ingles but before that I had a certain mountain in Wales to conquer. I’m climbing Mt Snowdon with a fantastic group of people, the leadership team from Incentive FM and we’re doing it for a really worth charity, Scottys Little Soldiers. Scottys supports children who have had a parent/s who have died whilst in the armed forces. If you can spare a few quid that would be great. Just Giving Link
Our original summit attempt was cancelled due to the ‘ Beast from the East’ weather front, -26 at the summit would have been a tad cold.
So… we decided to re schedule the climb for the 13th March and the weather was really nice although it was due to be cold at the top. We set off about 8.30am having our picture took outside the snowdon train station.
The first mile was a killer ! Straight upwards with no let off really got the blood pumping, but the views were spectacular
Our team of 9 settled in and for the next 3.5 hrs took out time assisting each other and took breaks along the way eventually arriving just short of the top where the Pyg track meets the Llanberis route. Thank god we didn’t come up that route as it looked really hard with all the snow and ice.
we then had something to eat and drink before we took on the summit. From here it looked daunting and miles away…
But we made it in about half and hour and what an achievement ! We all walked to the summit together as a team. Brilliant
what a day it was and great to do with the team from work. A real team approach ! Bruce made a video of the day. Hope you like it.
