3 Peaks Challenge

Today was the start for 4 young enthusiasts to complete the 3 peaks challenge. Their plan was to go from summit to summit in 24 hours. Their first mission was to scale the heights of Ben Nevis, where they were shown the way by our instructor Guy. The walk up was long, as we were taking our time and saving energy for the rest of the challenge. We set off at 2000 and arrived at the summit shelter at 2315. We ate and recharged on the summit, ready for our speedy decent at mid-night. It took just over 2 hours to descend via the walkers path, but the boys were still extremely enthusiastic and the pace did not decrease. We arrived back at Glen Nevis Hostel just after 2 am, where they jumped into the car and headed of to The Lakes for their second summit.
