On Saturday morning, myself and 9 friends are off to Scotland for the final part of our 3 Peaks challenge – Ben Nevis.
The plan is to climb on Sunday, weather permitting, but we have arranged our schedule so that we can climb on Monday or Tuesday if we have to. We just might because although the weather is getting better, there has been snow and lightning several times this week, along with up to 90 mph winds and temperatures down to -18 degrees at the summit when wind chill is taken into account. Yikes. Needless to say, I’ve upgraded my walking gear to get a few more warm items!
After three nights in Fort William we head to Glasgow for a day and a night, which should be a nice opportunity to unwind at the end of a tiring few days – as long as we don’t upset the locals, that is!
