Gripple team complete Three Peaks Challenge

Published:  11 October, 2010

Gripple
Giles Moore (Gripple’s sales manager for the UK, Ireland and Pacific) and mountaineering colleague Arthur Valeyev (industrial designer) atop Mount Snowdon before finally completing their Three Peaks Challenge.

With only the downward leg of Mount Snowdon to complete on their Three Peaks Challenge to raise at least £1500 for a children’s hospice, members of the team from Sheffield-based Gripple and Loadhog take a short break. The challenge is to ascend and descend the tallest peaks in Scotland, England and Wales — Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Mount Snowdon.

There was no stopping, with food and drink taken on the move and sleep snatched during the drive between mountains. During the challenge, the group notched up 28 miles, burned up 9800 Calories each and was driven 500 miles.
