A private challenge event organised to raise money for Sense, the leading national charity supporting children and adults who are deafblind. Andy Watt and his team, Nino Caldaralo, John Thompson, Andy Sugden and Mick Mahoney wanted to do the challenge for Andy's daughter Molly, who was diagnosed with Retinitus Pigmentosa December 2006; a condition which added to her severe deafness and one that is recognised as Ushers Syndrome, one of the types of deafblindness.
The guys successfully achieved the challenge over three days. The first day involved undertaking the Grade 1 scramble over the knife edge ridge of Crib Goch, which they all managed well although admitted to being rather exhilarated!
Day 2 we traversed the Glyders, the hardest day in terms of time on their legs and unlike the previous day, where we had glorious sunshine, the weather was more than challenging! They all stuck in however and got on with the quad-trashing climbs and some very wet, slippy rocky technical descents. A long day out the guys managed to complete the stage in around 9 hours.
The final day involved the longest distance but once we were up ontop of the first peak, Pen Y Ole Wen the hard work was pretty much done.
