Happy #InternationalMountainDay 2017 everyone!! I’ve done very well this year… I’ve climbed Ben Nevis (1,345 metres) and Snowdon (1,085 metres), so in other words the highest mountains in both Scotland and Wales!
Still can’t believe that I am done both Snowdon and Ben Nevis this year! Just need to make sure, that I do Scafell Pike at some point next year!!
Here are the two vlogs while doing Snowdon and Ben Nevis 🙂
After really getting the mountain climbing bug over the last year or so. About time, I added a new sub section to my photo gallery! Which will display some of my favourite photos, of some of the UK named summits, I’ve done! Sure, this list will grow fast!
Can you check out the photos so far @ www.gordon-valentine.com/zenphoto/uk-named-summits/.
That’s me just climbed Snowdon, which is the highest mountain in Wales, at an elevation of 1,085 metres above sea. Even the bad weather did not stop us from having great fun! Oh and say hello my vlog guests James and Shaun!
Check out the route we took at www.strava.com/activities/944940040.
First of all got to say a big thanks to Shaun for doing all the driving today!! And of course to his Dad, for letting him use his car! Got to say that he’s a great driver! Felt safe 100% of the time!
We all had amazing time! Even the crap weather did not stop us, from making it all the way to the top! Extra well done to Shaun for climbing his first mountain. Let’s hope, he’s now got the bug and that, I talk him into doing Scafell Pike. Which is the highest mountain in England.
And of course, also well done to James! Who was, feeling it from the off! Then like me, he’s more into cycling than walking! We all made it, to the top and back down safe. Which is the main thing!
Just wish the weather had been better! But that just makes me really, want to do it again! Hoping we get better views the next time!!
So pleased! I will be climbing Snowdon before the end of the month! Well unless we have very bad weather on the day! So that will be the highest Mountain in Wales done.
Then it will just leave me with Scafell Pike, the highest Mountain England (Still to sort out a date). And of course Ben Nevis, in Scotland! Which I am doing in July with Nick!!
