Day 1, Fri 17 Aug 2018

Day 1 - Arrival and start of challenge

Arrive early morning at our accommodation in Snowdonia to meet your team and for an introduction, briefing about the event and kit check. After this the team will be transferred to the start point. 

The Challenge begins! 
We will first attempt the Carneddau Section; you will summit the peaks of Foel Fras, Garnedd Gwenllian, Foel Grach, Yr Elen, Carnedd Llewelyn, Carnedd Dafydd and finally Pen y Ole Wen. The day will finish in the Ogwen Valley where our transport will meet us and take the team back to our accommodation.

This section is the very challenging and the most remote of the weekend; involving some steep ascents and ridge walking. It is highly likely that the team will still be on the mountain as darkness falls so head torches are a must for this section of the challenge.

Day 2, Sat 18 Aug 2018

Day 2 - The Glyders

You will have breakfast and get prepared to take on the second day of your challenge, the Glyderau Section, starting from Gwer Gof Uchaf we will summit the stunning Tryfan first before going on to tackle Glyder Fach, Glyder Fawr, Y Garn and finishing on Elidir Fawr. This section is again very challenging and involves some very steep ascents and minor scrambles. 

The team will descend from Elidir Fawr into Nant Peris where you will finish for the day and get transferred back to our accommodation to get some rest in advance of the final day.

Day 3, Sun 19 Aug 2018

Day 3 - The final day

The final day begins with another early breakfast then off to complete the Snowdon Section of the challenge which includes the peaks of Garnedd Ugain and Snowdon (we do not ascend Crib Goch as part of this challenge unless conditions are perfect, see later).  The ascent of Snowdon involves some steep ascents and rugged terrain.

We descend off Snowdon and finish the challenge in Llanberis where you can celebrate with your team the achievement of completing this epic challenge.
