The Welsh 3000ft Peaks
The "Welsh 3s" is a fantastically varied route, with everything from exposed scrambling to beautiful coastal views. It passes over the fourteen 3000ft+ mountains in Wales, starting on the summit of Snowdon and finishing on the summit of Foel Fras. Along the route you'll tackle the (in)famous Crib Goch, an exposed knife-edge ridge, the rocky peaks of the Glyders, including some more scrambling fun on Tryfan, and the majestic Carneddau plateau. From start-to-finish it is 30 miles with nearly 15,000ft of ascent, and if done in one day is tough for even the fittest of people. The aim is to complete within 24 hours, but if you're feeling speedy then 12 hours summit-to-summit is achievable. Make a booking or enquiry
All in one day
We will start early from Pen-y-Pass, usually at around 4am, and therefore it's a good idea to be staying in Snowdonia the evening before and after the walk (we can book this for you). This will give us plenty of time to get through the majority of the route in the daylight hours. The finishing post is Abergwyngeryn on the coast. We will sort out practicalities such as getting back to your transport or accommodation when you make a booking.
Backpacking the Welsh 3000s
The route can also be backpacked over two or three days, staying either on campsites or in hostels/B&Bs in the valleys. If carrying tents then doing the route over two days is arguably just as hard as doing it in one with less gear, but it does give you the opportunity to really make the most of the experience.

and we can come up with a plan to suit you.
We typically charge £220 for 1-2 people or £250 for 3-4 people (per group) if the route is done over one day, though it's best to get in touch
