24 Peak Challenge, A Success!
We’re glad to report that Laura and Stephen are now fully recovered following their 24 peak challenge. To paint you a picture of how tough this challenge was, here’s a short synopsis in the words of our valiant trekkers.
Day 1 was a complete mental challenge as well as being crucifying for the knees. There was a very long hike between peaks 3 and 4 which was when the challenge became a bit of a mental game because you still had all the biggest peaks yet to do. The final peak was Bowfell which overlooks the Langdale region and from there we had to walk an exhausting 1.5 hour distance back to the car downhill on weary legs.
The second day covered 15 miles and 14 mountains which started near Ambleside. As you can imagine the first few miles were hard work given the exhausting day beforehand. Apart from 2 rather evil sharp descents and ascents over Fairfield, Seat Sandal and Dollywaggon Pike the day was a little easier than the first day despite covering 4 more peaks. We were also lucky with the weather and managed to enjoy some great views.
The challenge was far harder than we anticipated and took a lot of grit and determination to get through. Also, because the route was not circular and often caked in fog, it took quite a lot of planning and superb navigational skills to get us through.
And the best news of all, we’re extremely proud to have so far raised £800 for The MPS Society and Macmillan which is a fantastic achievement. To donate and see further photos from the event please visit https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/oulsnam-lettings-24peakchallenge
