They say that ‘a change is as good as a rest!’ Well for group of pupils and staff, and not forgetting one brave parent, the first week of the summer holidyas was spent tackling the Welsh Three Peaks – Snowdon, Cader Idris and Pen y fan.
Pupils Elis Barnett Smith, Iain Mitchell, Andrew Barry and Will Trumper along with Christ College’s Director of Sport, Tim Trumper and Orchard House Houseparent, Ali Copp, set off on Monday 7th July to undertake a Three Peaks challenge.
Mr Copp explained: “We decided to climb all three peaks in just over 24 hours leaving Christ College on Monday morning, climbing Snowdon that afternoon, then Cader Idris on Tuesday morning and completing the final ascent of Pen y fan on Tuesday after lunch.”
Mother of Elis, Deborah Barnett, also accompanied the group on the Snowdon leg which began from Llanberis Pass.
Mr Copp continued: “None of the four pupils had climbed Snowdon before so it was a good experience for all concerned and it took us two and a half hours to get to the summit. Cader Idris, near Dolgellau, although lower than Snowdon represents a similar climb in altitude to the summit at 893m. We were lucky with the weather with good visibility on the summits and great views across North Wales. Pen y fan, the highest peak in South Wales at 886m was climbed in a little under an hour as the boys got into their stride again. Challenge complete!!”
Well done to one and all!
