Conquering Snowdon for Barnabus
Rory pictured here with his Dad took on an incredible challenge to climb the highest mountain in Wales, towering at an awe-inspiring 3560ft/1085m. Snowdon is also the highest point in the British Isles; so definitely not a challenge for the faint hearted!
Rory is a young lad with a big heart and wanted to use all his energy to raise money to help the homeless. Wth a lot of excitement Rory set off with his Dad and Uncle to successfully climb Snowdon, in extremely misty conditions on the way up and at the top.
Rory's Dad writes: On several occasions, when Rory was finding parts of the climb really difficult he said ‘’I will conquer, I will get to the top’’ and he did! At the top he then said ‘’I have conquered! ’He did say afterwards that he thought that going up was a bit harder than he had thought but coming down was a bit easier than he had thought. He was excited about walking through the clouds and he now knows that it is quite damp when you are in the clouds! All round it was a very rewarding experience for all of us.
We're so proud of you Rory, well done and we love the photo, how on earth did you make it, in that mist? Thank goodness you took our flag at least we can see you. An awesome challenge, thank you so much!
