Summer is here

Everyone completed the 15 peak Challenge last weekend in fantastic style, We had great weather and I think everyone was a little sun burnt by the end of the weekend.

Some members of the group were training for either Everest Base Camp, Kilimanjaro or Mont Blanc.

I'm currently in Fort William starting the 3 Peaks tomorrow.
We also have a group sleeping on the summit of Snowdon tonight as their starting the Welsh 15 Peaks Challenge in 24hrs at 05.00am

It's going to be a fun weekend.

Just returned from a great trip up Toubkal.
Everyone summited and the conditions were great.

There's still plenty of snow in the High Atlas plus with all the spring flowers and the water falls in full flow the scenery was just stunning.
We trekked for 3 days in total which allowed us enough time to acclimatise.
It was along last day summiting then going back down to Imlil for a few beers and a hot shower, but the mountains were stunning plus being on a high from summiting made it easier.

We had a few hours in Marrakech to do some last minute shopping in the souks enjoy a fresh orange juice in the Jemaa El Fna before boarding our flights home.

I stayed on in Morocco to recce Essaouira on the coast which was stunning and the perfet way to chill out after the Toubkal climb.
Were now gonig to be adding Essaouria as an optional extenstion to all our future Morocco Trips. Back in Snowdonia tomorow with a group of four doing the Snowdon Horseshoe, it's going to be a hot day with super views all day.
