17:00: Arrived at Ben Nevis
20:00: Summitted the mountain, had a snack + a selfie

23:00: Reached the bottom
23:30: Decamped to A&E
07:00: Arrived in the carpark in Warrington (see panographic evidence below)
07:00 – 09:00: Hung-out in the carpark in Warrington

13:00: Arrived at Snowdon (I think – we were in the clouds) & started the ascent, brave Boss in tow

17:12: Found a pub at the finish line/made the pub our finish line
17:13: Toasted with cider and welsh cakes
24:00: FAST asleep
Despite the unexpected stint in the carpark (possibly the most challenging part of the 24 hours), it was a very fun adventure with my work mates. Ben Nevis was completely stunning, with a beautiful sunset on a balmy, near-solstice evening. I can only imagine Snowdon was stunning. And to Scafell, we’ll see you next time. Well done, Boss, for remaining our courageous leader throughout.
Ben Nevis, in all of his glory.
I would recommend visiting each beautiful mountain at a more leisurely pace, for full enjoyment; as there is much to be enjoyed on each. Though I am very grateful for my Two Peaks and a Carpark experience of lifetime!
