With a final push, the cross on the summit was reached. This was a first time climb to the top for some of the more ‘mature’ participants!! After pausing to get their second wind it was all downhill. Literally! The group headed back to the base camp where lashings of hot tea and fresh brown bread were laid on. Talk about manna from heaven!! The chatting even started up again!!
Denise and the gang will be undertaking the climb again next Sunday at 9.00a.m. So, if you fancy a morning of chat, fun, fresh air, exercise and of course the tea and brown bread, rise bright and early and join in for the crack!! If you take few steps or complete the climb you’ll feel all the better for it! To get to “base camp” follow the yellow arrow signs from Summerhill Cross. Fair play to Tom Kenneally for all his help, support and hospitality to Denise and to all who join her in the Devil’s Bit climb every Sunday morning.
Tom Kenneally shows the ‘would-be mountaineers’ how to warm up properly with some of his unique moves!
Denise warms up with a few stretching exercises before the Sunday morning climb with encouragers and supporters
