Fourteen Welsh Mountains spanning 22 miles, 14,000 feet of ascent and all inside . . . 1 DAY. This is up there as possibly the toughest undertaking you’ll ever sign up for – beware! Done in a single day this is one of Britain’s toughest 24 hour challenge walks requiring fitness, stamina and a certain kind of mindset: it makes the “Three Peaks” a mere training exercise for the boys.
Attempting to do the Welsh 3000s challenge is HARD – so why not let us help you with the guiding and logistics to give you every opportunity to achieve success. (We pride ourselves on our high success rate). This guided walk combines true challenge with wilderness, excitement and awe – and all inside the space of one weekend!
We employ fresh leaders for different stages ensuring higher chances of success and increased levels of safety. You will need good fitness, mental robustness and a good head for heights too.
ItineraryUp early at about 3.30am, grab a quick snack and slurp some fluids. Meet us outside the Vaynol Arms in Nant
Peris at your given start time where you will be driven to Pen-Y-Pass. From here you commence the challenge with a traverse of Crib Goch headed for Snowdon, before descending to Nant Peris where breakfast will be served at around 8.30am. Following the mandatory kg of muesli plus bacon/egg butties we’ll head up Elidir Fawr (“big Elidir”). From the top of Elidir Fawr the whole group is divided into sub teams of around 5 – 8 people by ability/pace. The route then follows with Y Garn, the Glyders (x2) and Tryfan. From Tryfan we head down to Llyn Ogwen for a spot of dinner before bagging the last 6 – the Carneddau.
By now, in a parallel universe of dreamland you may finish in time for last orders at the Vaynol Arms. Back in real life you
won’t. Instead you'll reach the end point sometime in the early hours where you'll be picked up and delivered back to
Nant Peris. When the feeling of death has departed your body, get up and head home!
This adventure is perfect for individuals and small groups, and can be tailored for:
