"Dont leave without me!" Passing above steep screes which fall to the right of Five Finger Gully. Notorious scene of many fatalities during decent. The summit was hidden in cloud by the time we arrived, a white out made it very difficult to identify the cliff edges as they blended seemlessly with the sky and the horizon. Unable to retrace our footprints.... by this time they had blown over with fresh snow! We knew if we headed too far south we would fall into the gully as many walkers who attempt to avoid the North Face of the mountain eventually do...steering too wide a course. Awareness of position and judgement crucial at this stage!
Always being told I need to chill out more because life is too short to take yourself too seriously...😁
Achieving my own personal goal of summiting all three peaks in the same year feels truly rewarding and has fuelled my inner ambition to venture on to new challenges....but to have been able to endure the journey with my close friend has been the greatest part! I feel extremely grateful to have shared the adventures and memory's. Looking forward to what 2019 brings. ☺️ #bennevissummit #explorers #bennevis #proudmoment #threepeakschallenge #travelblogger
