Hello peeps! Bomb Squad here!
So today the intrepid Explorers of Freespirit and the Leaders hit Snowdon for a hike. After an eye watering 0630 wake up we demolished sausage and bacon sarnies and embarked on the fun bus for Pen Y Pass.
This is where it really started to get interesting…
XC Weather, Met Office you little liars!
Anyway suffice to say it chucked it down, I’m not exactly sure how we angered Zues but he had the last laugh…
So we ascended the Pyg Path to the summit in about 3 hours. The Explorers we amazing, actually considering the weather they were exceptional.
You learn so much more when the weather is a challenge hillwalking.
After getting to the summit rather refreshed by the wind and rain we took shelter in the Train Station Cafe’. The guys demolished their packed lunches with all the restraint of Predator!
Thinking the weather might improve, we trekked to the summit for a Team Photo, might as well be a steam photo ( we were giving off enough of it! ).
We returned to Pen Y Pass, via a rather slippery miners track. Ewan called the slips as they occurred, emerging from the mountain like a steaming warrior Jack threw himself in the lake, full dunk, he got out 12 times faster than he went in…
We returned this eve full of team spirit, laughing at the weather and the mountain of wet kit. And thats the way it should be!
