Jimmy's Last Hurrah

About the group

3 friends from Tamworth, Staffordshire. There is me, Rich – The Planner / Jim – The Inspiration / Ritchie – The Looks.

An extremely spontaneous challenge that we decided to do three weeks prior to the walk. It’s all down to Jim leaving us to become an Army Medic at the end of April. It’s his long held dream and time is running out, fast.

We are all solid walkers (I have completed the challenge before), we are mainly worried about traffic as we are doing it on Easter Monday but it’s our only free day before Jim’s last day.

Sunday – Camping at Glen Nevis
Monday – Starting Ben Nevis at 6am
Tuesday – Finishing Snowdon at 5.59am (hopefully)
