July has been and gone we've been making the most of the summer day light hours even if the sun has been in hiding.

We helped out on a Snowdon training weekend early in July, everyone at the weekend was in training for there charity challenges.

We climbed the Glyders on Saturday and then Snowdon on Sunday, we had some rough weather on Saturday but we were rewarded with some sunshine and great views from Snowdon Summit.
Everyone swapped a few fund raising idea's and few extra tips for there big challenge ahead.

It was also great to meet some of the team who i will be climbing Kilimanjaro with for Help For Hero's in October.

Also in July we had another 15 Peaks Challenge, once again the first day was spent in very poor visibility and much of the day was spent navigating our way over the Carneddau in thick mist.

Day 2 started off on the challenging north ridge of Tryfan and everyone was buzzing when we finally made it to the Summit, it was then onto the Glyders and the Canterliever Rock, some members then decided to call it day while the others raced on up Y Garn and Elidir Fawr to finish what was a very long day.
Day 3 we had perfect weather for the Snowdon Horseshoe, starting off nice and early we made our way over Crib Coch which is always a bit of a challenge then the weather closed in for a short while and we finally made to Snowdon Summit our final 15 Peaks Summit for late lunch.
Everyone was still feeling strong so we decided to complete the Snowdon Horseshoe.
We finally made it back to Pen Y Pass well and truly worn out just in time for beer o clock.
