2 Peaks.... but really 3

Spike and I spent Friday night and Saturday taking a charity group of 15 from South Wales up Ben Nevis and Scafell Pike. The Ben was still holding on to its full winter conditions above 1100m with firm snow underfoot, bit of a shock for the group. 5 hrs up and down then an overnight drive to Seathwaite. After an early start we were back in the car park at 9.30am having ticked off Scafell Pike. From here the group headed south to Snowdon and home. Im sure they would have completed the round in under 24 hrs..... well done and for great causes.

The Dark Side.....

A bit of after work fun and play last week with a trip down the upper Feshie. Ive not been in a kayak for a while so it was a bit of a baptism of fire with not many eddies about and the river at a good level. Liam and Olly kept us entertained or was it me with the only swim of the evening! Cheers to Graeme for the photies.
