Disney Climb Snowdon

Congratulations to all the Disney who climbed Snowdon raising money for Great Ormond Street Hospital.

After a long coach journey up from London everyone finally arrived in Snowdonia late Friday evening after dinner it was time for a quick briefing then straight to the pub for a night cap.
Everyone woke Saturday morning to glorious sunshine, looking forward to the day ahead we all got our kit together ready to set off for Snowdon, Then out of nowhere two very special guests arrived.
It was Mikey Mouse and Goofy they had come to see everyone off on there Snowdon Challenge.
Mikey, Goofy and all the climbers jumped on board the bus for Snowdon stopping on route for a few photo's with our very special friends.

Mikey & Goofy then had to head back home and we started out on our Snowdon Challenge.
Our ascent route up Snowdon was on one of the less used routes but also the longest and hardest which kept us away from all the crowds.
Once we had climbed onto the South Ridge which was going to lead us all the way to the summit we were rewarded with stunning 360 views of Snowdonia.
After a very relaxed lunch stop we made our last climb to the Summit, we then finally made our way back down the PYG Track and to our waiting bus at Pen Y Pass feeling pretty worn out and a little sun burnt.

After dinner it was time for a few celebration drinks to toast the success of the climb and the huge amount of money raised for the Great Ormond Street Hospital.
