3 Peaks Challenge 2017
Well done to our Jessup 3 Peaks Challenge team who successfully negotiated all 3 national peaks (Snowdon, Scafell Pike, Ben Nevis) in under 24 hours in June 2017.
The team, led by General Manager Peter Butler, have completed this challenge every year for several years.
Starting at Snowdon this year, the weather was good and the climb went well. Then a night drive to Scafell, starting the walk in the dark at 3am, this mountain is a tough, stepped climb all the way up. A short respite during the drive to Scotland where the weather got colder, wetter and windier. Ben Nevis proved a difficult finish, with freezing temperatures, driving rain and strong winds, but the team made it back down safely, with total challenge time of just over 23 hours.
