3 Peaks Challenge August

Just driving through the incredibly beautiful Glen Coe on route to Fort William, our 3 Peaks Challenge team are chomping at the bit to hit Ben Nevis our 1st mountain on the 3 Peaks Challenge. With us we have some of our Winter Toubkal group from February this year, along with some new family members to the Adventurous Ewe team, the sun is shining Steve Wonder is blasting out the stereo and Ben Nevis is just coming into sight, so time to go and start the clock and smash the 3 Peaks.

Catch ya laters.

Kilimanjaro July 2012

I'm currently lying in my tent at 3900mt in millennium camp on Kilimanjaro after what can only be described as an epic climb, the whole group reached Stella Point, with only client not reaching the summit. It was my 17th Kilimanjaro summit and possibly the coldest temperatures I've ever had on the summit, it was dam cold with a strong Northwesterly making the wind chill well below -20, the group worked so hard to bag there first high altitude summit, with a record number vomits from one member of our team, i think it was around 5, our doctor enjoyed reaching the summit after just returning from Denali and not summiting due to heavy snow fall, in fact our doctor summit twice. I must just add a congratulations to Claudia aged 15 who summited in style.

Tomorrow we descend 2100mt to the gate through rain forest hoping to spot the elusive Black & White Colobus monkey, then it's party time in Moshi Town for a few cold Kilimanjaro beers.
