3 Peaks Challenge

Challenge Complete!

We had another good day on the mountain! Saved the best till last with an ascent of God’s mountain!  I know I am biased but Snowdon didn’t disappoint.

The day started with a clear run down from Cumbria but a very hot start mean we were carrying an awful lot of water!  We went up the PYG track from Pen Y Pass taking things slowly.  A breeze higher up the mountain brought some light relief and good progress was made.

We said hello to some of the people who we had met on Saturday and Sunday on the previous two mountains and lots of ‘well dones’ from people we met on the way.

We arrived on the summit in good time, to yet again clear views all around, the customary photos and a smelly group hug!

A scramble down the PYG track till it met the Miner’s track and then down the latter to pizzas in Betws-y-coed.  A beautiful campsite on the banks of the river Conwy was had last night and Mr Royle and I sneaked in a swim at 6:30 the morning.  Breakfast at Ikea and homeward bound.
