Three Peaks...Almost

Chris and I attempted to do the Three Peaks Challenge last weekend, collecting money for the NSPCC, St Peter's Hospice and Wallace and Gromit's Grand Appeal (if you'd like to make a donation, please go to: The challenge is to climb Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon in under 24 hours. Sadly, we were so badly delayed by the weather on Scafell Pike that we didn't have time to attempt Snowdon that weekend, and we're going back there on Saturday. However, I thought I'd share some of the photos from the climbs that we did do...
