Team Legend conquers Ben Nevis

Winding up the Pony Path shining like chrome
Until we stood shivering, yet so proud and tall 
Amidst that collapsed volcanic dome
Within the ruins of the old observatory hall 

Riding that physical and mental block wall
Blood sweat, tears shed at heights too steep
At Lochaber we made the prayer call
Four hours later we were top of the heap 

Wincing pain saw us stumble and stagger
Almost five ascending Highland miles
East End to Fort William with a swagger
Reaching the highest point in Britain's golden isles

Assembly of Akik, Saleh, Shaheed
Abu, Mok, Mosh, KP,
Shahel, Charlie, Hamid
Kam, Sam, Emz, Rich D 

Team Legend had reached the peak
A mega trek with Human Relief
Conquered Beinn Nibbheis with that killer streak
Adding sunshine to the orphans grief

In tribute to the fourteen who reached the top on 29th June 2013.
