Mountain challenge 2016

Mountain challenge 2016

At the beginning of July a group of students attempted to climb 20 Wainwrights in one day in the Lake District.

Continuing the theme of the 2016 British summer (a damp squib), their challenge was hampered by the poor weather (low cloud, rain and high winds). The group did still manage to climb 10 of the peaks in a very credible 10 hours, an outstanding achievement achieved with the likes of cramp hitting the group at various stages of climbs and descents.
