21 January, 2019: Yesterday was a tough day to be contemplating a guided ascent of Scafell Pike in The Lake District, but clients Shaun & Hayley Glover were as keen as mustard! That was just as well as the forecast was for strong winds, low cloud, continual drizzle and high wind chill on the tops. It was hard work, but the pair, with Iain, succeeded in reaching the summit of England's highest mountain; and returning safely. A real achievement given the conditions so a big WELL DONE! to Shaun & Hayley for their commitment and hard graft.
