Welsh 3000s - 14 Peaks

To climb all the Welsh mountains over 3000 feet is one of the country's great long walks - over 40km of walking and nearly 4000m of ascent. To do this in 24 hours is a huge challenge and will take between 18 and 22 hours. Your legs might feel it for a few days though! The record for running them belongs to Finlay Wild who managed it in a staggering 4 hours and 10 minutes!

A more manageable but still considerable mountain challenge is to climb them over 3 days. This also allows for taking in the excellent North ridge of Tryfan scramble. 

A typical itinerary would be*

Day 1 - Tryfan, Glyderau Fach, Glyder Fawr, Y Garn and Elidir Fawr. A long day with lots of ascent

Day 2 - Pen Yr Ole Wen, Carnedd Dafydd, Yr Elen, Carnedd Llewelyn, Foel Grach and Foel Fras. Another long day over some of the wilder parts of Snowdonia

Day 3 - Crib Goch, Crib y Ddysgl and Snowdon. Shorter day but packed with excitement traversing the knife edge ridge and finishing at the highest summit, Snowdon.

Make this your next mountain challenge.
