Welsh 3000 Challenge

I have been out with repeat clients Alex and Mark who, along with a couple of extra willing friends, fancied taking on the Welsh 3000 Challenge. We left Pen Y pass this morning with the sunrise and enjoyed some lovely views on Crib Goch as the sun hit the mountains whilst the rest of the country was still tucked up warm in bed. We reached Nant Peris after just over 3 hours and I handed the baton over to friend Brian who took them over Elidir Fawr, Y Garn, Glyder Fawr & Glyder Fach and Tryfan. I then met back up with them in the Ogwen Valley another 6 hours later to take them over the Carneddau. Unfortunately by that stage various injury niggles meant that the guys had enjoyed themselves enough and the prospect of a curry and a few pints were more appealing than a traverse of the Carneddau! Nonetheless we all had a fantastic day in perfect weather - thanks very much to all who took part and especially Brian for his help on the Glyderau.
