As with any challenge I expect there will a low moment or two when I feel like hanging up my boots and heading to the nearest pub. It could be because of bad weather, tiredness or perhaps even the pressure of navigating against the clock, which is why I think it’s great to be doing the peaks as part of a team. We will be able to support each other when morale is low and share mars bars when that extra energy boost is required. Meet my fellow trekkers:
After living in Austria for 4 years I am a regular hiker who loves being by the coast as well as up in the mountains. The Seven Sisters in the South Downs is one of my favourite spots – the breath-taking white cliffs and beautiful sea colours get me every time. I have never done the Yorkshire Three Peaks before so super excited to discover new territory!
I have spent many happy days walking and climbing the mountains of England, Wales, Scotland and across the world in all weathers. One of my favourite views is from Little Tryfan in North Wales where I have climbed and scrambled with my family and friends for many years – it is truly a special happy place. I am a definite outdoor type – looking forward to the 3 Yorkshire peaks challenge at the beginning of July – let’s hope the knees can still cope!
Climbing Schiehallion (The Fairy Mountain) near Rannoch in Scotland in the Snow last November was one of the best mountain days recently (and we did it in the best time ever!) – so lucky to have such perfect conditions of crisp snow and brilliant sunshine! Am a definite convert to the mountain life – provided it is not too cold and I can of course, as a creature of comfort, return to a warm Inn and a hot bath at the end of the day! And I always carry my lipstick.
