3 Peaks Challenge 7 Aug

7 August 2012

Drive from Ben Nevis was all in torrential rain but it stopped by the time we made it to the bottom of Scarfell. Out timing has been perfect.

Left car park at the bottom of Scarfell at 12.15 am and made the climb up and down in 4 hours. Good pace all the way with no major stops. It was very cold and misty at the summit , took 2 photos, quick drink and polished off a Mars Bar in about 3 minutes and started off back down immediately.

Because of the earlier rain it was very slippery and I went over a few times but nothing dramatic. Got back to car park and Jim had hot tea, coffee, fresh orange juice and lots of bacon rolls waiting for us. Good old Mountain and Glen www.mountainandglen.com
Now on route to Snowdon, about a 4 hour drive so time for some more sleep.
