Another hiking trip! This time I challenged myself to complete the 3 peaks challenge, which involved climbing the 3 highest peaks in England, Wales, and Scotland in under 24 hours!
With a group of ~68 people we spent a night in Fort William to prepare before beginning the challenge first thing in the morning with our first hike: Ben Nevis in Scottland (1,345m). Then a 6-7 hour drive to Scafell Pike in England (978m) for a hike in the dark with head torches. And finally another 3-4 hour drive to Snowden in Wales (1,085m).
- Ben Nevis: 5hr 15min
- Scafell Pike: 3hr 40min
- Snowden: 4hrs 20min
Total mountain time: 13hrs 15min
The experience was exhausting both mentally and physically, but absolutely fulfilling and rewarding. There were points in time where I was in pain and at the verge of crying, but my teammates encouraged me to push on and I am so thankful they did.
