School exams soon but i hope to climb another mountain again soon in half term or at leave-out, please keep donating and thank you to those who did!
We climbed Cadair Idris in Snowdonia. There is a big long story before that bit though. Two nights before we were due to climb the mountain, I went to mum and said "Aaahhh Mum i don't feel well!", and was then promptly sick all over the floor, and that night i was sick 4 more times. Needlesss to say she was not impressed. The next day I slept for 18 hours. Then it was Climb Day, I got up all ready to go.... I got up the first 6 steps of the long climb up, stopped, sat down and removed my rucksack as i had no energy. Mum was very worried s to how I was going to do this and eventually after nearly crawling up for an hour I decided i old face a a custard tart..... i was ahead and we climbed it! It was incredibly hard, the first 200 metres we climbed up steps then climbed up some steep grassland slopes and we were on our way to the peak,. We finally after another 2 hours and then climbed e second one peak . Cadir Idris means Giants Armchair so it is a long walk up and then trek from the two peaks acting as armrests! We then proceeded to climb down again, we did this all in 6 hours! I guarantee it would be a challenge for most professional climbers.
Only 6 months to go and I'm feeling the nerves. I have set my mind to do this and i am getting really motivated. We go back to go to North Wales shortly and I can't wait, hopefully going up a harder route on Snowdon and doing Cadair Idris uder better physical circumstances. Thank you for visiting.
Good news! My brother is coming ( Alex ) and we are all booked up to go, my sister, mum, cousin, brother and maybe a few others. Its half term, change of plan we are going to Cadair Idris, it is 893 Metres nearly bigger than Snowdon in Wales, after that
hopefully we will climb Snowdon again on another route. We are climbing Caidir Idris on the Minnfordd route which i am told is a bit difficult.........keep commenting!
All booked to go! Charlotte my sister, my Mother and I and hopefully my brother Alex! I'm already starting to get a bit nervous.
Thank you for visiting.
