Hi we’re Aimee and Sophie @monkeys_climb_mountains sisters from Blackpool who love adventures, hiking, climbing and all things outdoors.
Our love of hiking, and in particular the Lake District, stems from our childhood where we would spend our entire summer holidays in a caravan exploring the fells and making memories.
We started our Wainwright journey just last December and have made some amazing friends along the way! Our favourite Wainwright to date has to be Scafell. Although not as high profile as its neighbour, Scafell Pike, Scafell was such a fun scramble!
Our biggest achievement this year will be completing the National Three Peaks. Although not attempting it in 24 hours this time we are very excited to be hiking Ben Nevis in July and Snowdon later on in the year to add to the already conquered Scafell Pike.
Our advice to new hikers is you can never be over prepared! Plan your routes, let someone know where you’re going, take plenty of water and enjoy the adventure!
Thanks for sharing your story, and good luck with Ben Nevis and Snowdon. We really are so lucky, to have all these amazing places on our doorstep. The Lake District is a short drive from Blackpool, happy days. Make sure you follow their journey👟🗻
