A team of us climbed Snowdon at the weekend to raise money for the charity Make-A-Wish Foundation!
14 members of the CSI Media team (and Sally the dog) got their walking
gear on and tackled what was probably one of the most difficult physical
challenges any of us have ever done before (with the exception of Nick
who is a pro at this kind of thing).
It was a scortching hot day and many of us soon realised that we were in for a hard day of walking (much of it actually climbing up some pretty big boulders), but we couldn’t give up after raising just over £900 so far for such an important children’s charity.
We managed to complete the climb in less than 6 hours, 3 hours up and 2 hours 45 minutes down. Not bad considering the sign at the Visitor Centre states that our chosen trail up is ‘Very Challenging’! It was very relieving to see the top of the peak within a few strides, the only disappointment for many of us was that the bar at the summit was closed.
Anyway, we are all recovering quite well with a few stiff legs and blisters but nothing too severe, and some people have actually been talking about possibly climbing Scafell Pike next year for charity.
Enjoy the photos and feel free to donate to Make-A-Wish Foundation, it’s not too late and will make some very poorly children’s dreams come true :)
