Meet this month’s #Ever­estAny­where sum­mi­teers

Anna Humphries, with the 3rd Worces­ter Scouts on their #Ever­estAny­where chal­lenge. The Scouts started at Llyn Id­wal in Snow­do­nia, with one group con­quer­ing Y Garn and the other sum­mit­ing Try­fan (pic­tured), Gly­der Fach and Gly­der Fawr. Both teams met at the top of Devil’s Kitchen be­fore head­ing down to Llyn Id­wal for a wild camp. Anna says: “The Scouts were su­per-ex­cited. Only a hand­ful had ever been on a hill or moun­tain be­fore. On the way down all we could hear was the sound of ex­cited Scouts shar­ing their sto­ries with each other about the day. They were in ec­stasy. I want to en­cour­age more and more young peo­ple into the out­doors. Teach­ing them the safe ways of en­joy­ing ad­ven­ture. The #Ever­estAny­here chal­lenge is a great way to en­gage them and make it pos­si­ble to reach an awe­some achieve­ment. The Scouts as­cended a good chunk of their Ever­est height and it’s in­spired them to keep go­ing to reach the top and then some. Thank you

Trail for changing our lives!”
