Its January, Father Christmas has left for his well earned break and in his wake comes the post-Christmas blues ….

Walkers take Pen-y-Fan in their Stride

Walkers didn’t lack the festive spirit when they embarked on Life Survival’s first event of 2010, Santa’s Revenge.  25 walkers took the blue skies and gentle breeze in their stride on a challenging walk up the famous Pen-y-Fan.

Pen-y-Fan is one of the toughest peaks to climb in Wales.  The mountain earns its reputation for its use as part of the British Army’s Special Forces selection process and for the beautiful views it commands on a clear day; at 886 metres much of mid Wales can be seen.

Three groups were formed based on how walkers wanted to pace themselves and were lead by an experienced guide who has passed the world’s toughest selection process. 

Trefor Morgan-Hayes, 56, who classed himself as being part of the “crucial rear-guard”, said “It has been many, many years since I last did a walk like this and it was a real achievement to get to the top.”

“Every step of the way we were supported and encouraged; and each time we had a break we were either taught a useful survival skill or told an interesting story about selection.  I would urge everyone to get on a Life Survival walk; it was a challenge but great fun!”

The day’s accomplishments were celebrated with a drink or two on Saturday evening before everyone left on Sunday morning feeling refreshed.
