Start of the climb at Ben Nevis

The challenge began with Ben Nevis early Saturday morning, facing all weathers – sun, rail, hail & snow! After a gruelling climb it was time to head straight to Scafell, a few hours respite in the minibus before setting off again.

Scafell Pike was imposing, the challenge here not so much the climb, it was tackled in the dark, with fog, making the path very dangerous indeed. No amount of bad weather was going to stop Team Big C though! Onwards to Snowdon, which was -3 at the summit.

Chris set himself a fundraising target of £1500, in total he has now raised £4162.00. We would like to thank everyone that supported him. To read Chris story you can view his Just Giving fundraising page https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/chris-yates49
