Snowdonia’s 3000fters

There’s a 24-hour, 14-peak challenge across Snowdonia, taking in all of the >3000ft peaks. It’s quite a trek, with 3 huge ranges, each of which I’ve done on separate day-trips. I know of quite a few people who’ve tried this and failed, so PPPPPPP, and we need a lot to be on our side, like the weather. The summer would be a good time to do this, cos we’ll need to do some walking through the dark and bits are quite rocky and scrambly. We could also do with some support to meet us at the roads to swap gear, or we’ll be carrying quite a bit.


Skye?

When we’re up for some hardcore scrambling, it would be nice to head up to the Isle of Skye to take in some crazy-assed ridge through the Cuillin Hills. This is getting a bit hardcore if you’re asking me… a chance to bag some extra munros, if we make it back alive (; (OS – Explorer 411)


3 peaks challenge?

I’ve previously toyed with the idea of walking the 24 hour 3 Peaks Challenge, covering Ben Nevis, Scafell and Snowdon within 24 hours. I struggled to convince anyone they were up for the driving feat though. Subsequently, I have become aware of the sailing/walking challenge (sailing between them), so am trying to track down the skills to do it. Obviously the sailing version isn’t a 24-hour challenge.
Ya never know – it might happen one day…
