3 Peaks Challenge 6 Aug 2011

6 August 2011

Very good nights sleep last night and a civilised start at 10.15 am this morning. Jim picked us up and transported us off to our start point at the bottom of Ben Nevis the tallest mountain in Great Britain. We set off bang on 11am and set a blistering pace in the blistering heat. Very hot on the way up. I drank 1 litre of water in the first hour.

Lots of people on the mountain but made it to the top in 3 hours, short break for a snack and quick photo call and then back down to meet Jim in the car park for a hot snack and a welcome cup of tea. Jim also patched up my leg after I went over the edge on my way back down. I am not going to say too much about that incident as I intend to sell the film rights later

Currently on a 6 hour drive from Ben Nevis in Scotland to Scarfell in England which we will climb overnight in dark. Time to get my head down and push up a few Z’s
