Amber's Law Yorkshire Three Peaks event
After downing my breakfast at 0400hrs I was ready for the day ahead in the Yorkshire Dales. I was at the car park at Horton in Ribblesdale at 0600hrs this gave me chance to catch up with my two other guides for the day who where Chris & Liam two brilliant Mountain Leaders.
The charity I was taking out today was called Amber's Law absolutely amazing bunch of people who where raising money for brilliant cause if you have time check out there website.
After breifing all the teams we set off at 0700hrs Liam my Mountain Leader was with group one I was in the middle and Chris brought group up last group, our first mountain was Pen-Y-Ghent at 694m this was covered quickly and before the teams new it they where taking pictures from the summit. This first mountain always give you good guide of what to expect for the rest of the day. From here it was onto the Viaduct where we stopped for cup of tea and some lunch and for the teams to catch there breath. Next mountain to tick off was Whernside at 736m which is steady walk along side the railway line and then gentle climb onto the summit where we managed to get some great pictures.
Our next and final mountain to tick off was Ingleborough at 724m this now has new route up to the summit which proved very muddy and good challenge for all the teams, the old route was currently being repaired.
Once on the summit we managed some great pictures around the trig point and from here we made our way back down and along the path back to Horton.
All the teams did amazing in covering the 42km route which was challenging at times, it was amazing day in the Yorkshire Dales being involved
with amazing charity.
