I have just realised that I haven't posted any updates from our recent charity climb up Snowdon, so I thought it best to write one now - better late than never!
Back in March 2010 my brother-in-law and I climbed Mount Snowdon in North Wales to raise money for the UK charity Help For Heroes. The first 3/4 of the walk was OK, but the last 1/4 was covered in deep snow and ice with gale force winds, which made it very challenging and quite a bit more dangerous than we would have liked. Despite the conditions, we made it to the summit and were able to (just about) stand at the cairn in 100+ mph winds.
We raised a grand total of £1,295.11 to help support members of the Armed Forces who have been wounded in the service of our country. A big thank you to everybody who helped by sponsoring us!
