Welsh 3,000ers Challenge - 03 May

Welsh 3,000ers Challenge - 03 May


Bank Holiday Weekend

03-05 May 2023


Make the most of the long weekend and join an exclusive club to reach the summit of all mountains in Wales above 3,000ft in a single weekend.


This is a tough challenge that is aimed at people with excellent mountain fitness.


This trip is limited to a small group of just 8 people, supported by 2 qualified and experienced mountain leaders.


Starting on Snowdon in the afternoon, you’ll traverse the mighty Crib Goch ridge before descending to your campsite for the night.


On day two you will head up and over the Glyderau range, reaching the summit of the highest peaks (including the mighty Tryfan!) before descending to your second campsite for a night of rest (your kit will be trasferred to the next campsite for you, so you wont need to carry heavy packs)


Waking up early on day 3, you will hike up a ridge to the summit of Pen yr Ole Wen before continuing along the Carneddau plateau.


The challenge is complete when you reach the summit of Foel Fras followed by a descent to the valley floor.


You will then return to the campsite for a well earned rest and a shower before heading to a local pub for a celebratory dinner.


As always, we’ll sort out the travel, transfers and accommodation so just meet in London and leave the rest to us.

  • Saturday - Meet at Euston at 6am and take a relaxing journey to North Wales where you will be met at the disembarking train station and driven to the foot of Snowdon to begin the challenge.
