Had a very pleasant jaunt around the Y3Ps yesterday. Leading a group of 33 people on a sponsored walk. Ably assisted by several of my Mountain Rescue teammates. Sore feet and aching legs today after roughly 40Km and 1500m of ascent.
Managed to squeeze in qualifications of Pen y Gent G/NP-010, Whernside G/NP-004 and Ingleborough G/NP-005. Just quick 2M FM using a handheld with a 5/8 whip. I was surprised to manage to get 4 contacts on each hill (a couple more on two of them).
Cracking weather, until a thunderstorm hit as we descended from Ingleborough. I was very pleased we had got well off the top before it hit.
