The Yorkshire Three Peaks, at night, on ice!
« on: 22:58:41, 11/01/17 »
Last Monday night (2nd January), I attempted the Yorkshire Three Peaks challenge. I'd already done it a couple of years previous so tried to up the challenge this time by doing it in the dark in winter. Turned out to be more black ice on the route than I've ever seen in my life, and made walking a nightmare in some places. Miraculously I only fell the once but was wishing I'd bought microspikes just about all the way around!

Enjoyed the blog.  A good way of avoiding the crowds as well.

Will be a doddle for a man of your experience (once your knee's fixed!).

The thread title sounds suspiciously like a Rick Wakeman concept album.
