Friday 16th June 2017 - Peak 100 - Pen Y Fan

6 years after Lloydy was killed in action on his third tour of Afghanistan, Karl along with his teammates made the final ascent of The 100 Peaks Challenge on to the summit of Pen Y Fan (in the Brecon Beacons) via Jacobs Ladder, in that moment, 25 days of emotion hit him like a train. Nearly two and half years of planning and 25 days of gruelling endurance had been realised in that moment, not to mention the significance of the occasion and the reason why the team were making that climb in the first place, to celebrate Lloydy and the life he led. Karl's little brother was a giant among men, he looked up to him as much as he looked up to Karl and for 2 and half years he tried to create a fitting tribute to the man he was, we hope, come the end of this, if you're reading the book when it's finished, you believe that we did.

Do you think it’s mad? A crazy Idea!?
Of course it’s mad, of course it’s crazy, that’s what makes it a great idea!

You may be beyond the last blue mountain, but my heart walks with you always little brother xxx

More to follow soon.....
