In the early hours of Saturday 21st August 2021, I will be on Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in the UK. Once we have completed about 7 hours on the hill, our support team will take us to Wasdale Head in the Lake District so that we can climb Scafell, the highest mountain in England before it gets dark. On Sunday morning 22nd August 2021 will see us on the Pygs Path on Snowdon, the highest mountain in Wales. After completing Snowdon, we will have breakfast on Llanberis and then come home.
Thank you all for your support
