Spare a thought for Young Weasel, Richard, today. He is attempting the Three Peaks Challenge. This is in aid of The Nepali Children's Trust. Later this month, YW is flying out to Nepal to make a film about the work of the Trust.
Richard and his mate have just about completed their task of walking up Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon. I just spoke to him and he was having a cup of coffee on the summit of Snowdon. Apart from running late, he is in good shape, but tired. They did Scafell Pike in the dark and got lost, creating a few hours delay, but all in all they have managed it, assuming the walk down from Snowdon goes ok. Not 24 hours, nearer 36, but not bad, considering they were new to all three routes.
