On the Pyg track, Snowdon, beautiful early light

I was guiding a group of 12 folk from London on their national 3 Peaks Challenge over the weekend. The challenge involves ascending Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon and if you can do it in 24 hours then it's a real bonus and massive achievement. We had fab weather all the way through, we were away from Ben Nevis by 1.30pm and missed the weather front that came into the west coast of Scotland that night.

The team did superb, 26 hours which was really good considering half the team had never been up a mountain in their life! This weekend I was working with
