So, the plan is for Steve Shields and I to do the Snowdonia 3000s. This is 15 peaks over 3000 feet and 28 miles distance. Usually this is attempted over three days however we will be doing it in one day. The pictures so far are of a training walk including Cadair Idris completed on the 17th of April 2021.
The main challenge will be in June 2021 I will be adding more info and pictures along the way.
More detail of the walk:
The idea is to summit each of the 15 peaks over 3000 feet (915m) within the Snowdonia mountain ranges within a 24hr period, this requires walking a total distance of 28.2 miles (45.4Km) with a total climb of 12802 feet (3902m) across mountain terrain.
Start at Pen Y Pass, elevation 350m
Crib Goch 923m
Garnedd Ugain 1065m
Drop down to Nant Peris car park 145m then up the second range to
Elidir Fawr 923m
Y Garn 947m
Glyder Fawr 1001m
