Walkers conquer summit in style

Walkers travelled from as far as Yorkshire and Bedfordshire on Saturday to experience the exciting and adventurous Adam and Eve Tea Party.  

Walkers arrived at the start point at 9am and were given the option of following the “cheeky” north face or the “steady” south side track of Tryfan in Snowdonia.

Despite many of the walkers not having done mountain walks before, everyone conquered the 3,000ft Tryfan mountain to the great delighted of the Directing Staff.

The event was the latest social event organised by Life Survival to give people a release from life’s routine and experience the constantly changing scenery the Snowdonia National Park has to offer.

The walk finished with a slap-up meal in a local pub at Swallow Fall.

The event got its name from the two, five foot natural stone columns that sit on the summit of Tryfan.  It is tradition for walkers to jump from Adam onto Eve to mark reaching the summit.  

The next social event is already being organised and details will follow shortly.

People with a need for adventure are being invited to experience what life on a UK Special Forces patrol is like.  The event will be run on the weekend of 17th to 19th September to raise money for the UK wide charity, Help for Heroes, which helps those wounded in Britain’s current conflicts.

The countdown has begun to recruit the 30 participants who would like to experience what life in the British Army is like. Dressed in full combat clothing and issued with essential kit and ration packs, participants will spend the weekend in the company of former members of the British Army’s elite regiment, the SAS.

As a member of a patrol, participants will get a fascinating insight into how Special Forces patrols operate in the most difficult of environments and the skills required to survive. During the course of the weekend they’ll learn combat and essential survival, concealment and camouflage, navigation and lots more.

The event will take place at a private estate close to Penrith in Cumbria. The estate is steeped in military history and was used during the Second World War to train agents of the Special Operations Executive before they were parachuted into Europe to set it “ablaze”.

Event organiser, Andrew Peace, Manager of AEL Doncaster, says, “This is a fantastic opportunity for individuals to experience life on patrol, learn some key survival techniques and in turn raise lots of money to help our heroes rebuild their lives after suffering life changing injuries”

Each participant is required to raise a minimum of £350. To down load an information pack click here, or sign up for this amazing adventure by calling 01909 731743 or email info@life-survival.com.
