Mom & Dad Completed Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge

We did it - Please copy & paste this video link for Video of completion at the end :) Thank you all so so much 13:30mins & we did it :)

Ingleborough - 723m or 2,372 ft

This one was my favorite, most probably because I had to have me gloves on walking poles strapped up to literally scramble up this one! And because I knew it was the last mountain haha. - We reached the peak by 18:00 within 12hrs :)

Whernside - 736m or 2,515 ft

This hurt me the most - after my shoe broke coming down Pen-y-ghent the constant hours of accent up Whernside hurt so much . . . I literally cried myself to the top & with Shane supporting me we completed it :)

Pen-y-ghent - 694m or 2,277 ft

Mountain 1 - Completed - We were straight into this & at the summit by 09:00!
