The Challenge
Route information
The challenge is to complete all 15 peaks. Without a doubt, this is a tough challenge but it is certainly within reach for most moderately fit walkers who have trained.
The group will be moving relatively quickly and will be running sections where appropriate, allowing more time to be taken on the tough ascents. The target time will be around 18 hours but naturally this is dependant on several factors including the weather.
The route is over 27 miles in length and there is no shortage of ascent (12,000ft). There will be some scrambling but nothing too testing. However on Crib Goch there is significant exposure and participants will need to be okay with heights.
The guides will help to ensure that you reach the checkpoints in good time and that your journey is safe and stress free.
What's included
  • Fully qualified guides will be with you every step of the way and take all the hassle out of the day (8 people per guide)
  • Safety and first aid cover
  • Checkpoint support
  • Refreshment stations including snacks and water
  • Transport (in case of injury)
  • Llangollen specific hand crafted memento
