Good to see five dashing young chaps from York OTC doing the Yorkshire 3 Peaks on Sunday 12th June. They gave the women in my group quite a shock on the top of Whernside when they shouted "naked mountain!" and duly got their kit off. However I just found out from one of my group that these chaps didnt complete the walk, instead they approached a motorist in the car park of the Hill Inn at Chapel le Dale and claimed they couldnt carry on and got a lift back to Horton in Ribblesdale. How do I know this? Well the motorist was the mother of one of my group. Id just like to point out at this stage that my group of 10 civilians included 6 females who were complete novices and we all finished the 25 mile walk including 5000 ft of ascent despite weather conditions that were some of the worst Ive experienced in 30 years of mountaineering. Sorry chaps but you are a bunch of handbags.
