Today we climbed up Tryfan the mountain that all other mountains want to be like when they grow up. It was 915m high, and it took us 4 hours to reach the top. A grade 1 scramble that involved Team Whack (Jez, Mr.White, Alicia, Eilish, Steph, Mia, Phoebe, Liam, Craig, Georgie, George) taking on an exciting (dangerous) adventure.
From the word go, it was ridiculosly high and vertically ridiculous. We had to work as a team to haul each other up steep gorges. Eilish felt sick having to push Phoebe’s rear end every five minutes. Luckily she didn’t have too many beans for breakfast. Half way up we looked down to see fighter jets passing beneath us.
We also bumped into three Norweigen soldiers hacking their way over the mountain. By two o’clock we finally made it to Adam and Eve and took a short break, sheltering from the 50mph wind gusts and cloud eating.
Photos and descent to follow as we need to eat … Alicia and Eilish…Whack Out
Hi, Georgie and Mia here, just had spag bol, it was WHACK. LOL. So, after we put on our waterproofs we set off to go down the rest of the mountain. It was like a human land-slide, mud, wet rocks, rain, wind, and a lack of balance 🙂
Mia fell 93 times, encrusting her clothes in mud. Craig slid at every opportunity to join Mia in the mud. It was a pathetic exuse for steps, and reminded me of a water-slide, minus the swimming pool.
Highlight of the days were;
- Georgie doing a forward roll into a bog.
- Phoebe repeatedly saying ‘i cant do it!’ lol 😉
- Mr. White’s singing that drove everyone crazzzzyyyyyy.
- Jez’s definition of ‘dangerous’ being ‘exciting’ lol
- Liam thinking every rock is worth money, so filled his pockets.
- And George saving my life (Mia) after I nearly fell down the mountain (“about 32cm’s Mia”- Mr White)
A whack day with a whack group, have a whack night!
Mia & Georgie. Blog tomorrow, WHACKOUT!
