EVENT DATE – 9 Peaks Challenge (8 places available)
July 7-11 2022
The Nine Peaks Challenge will entail climbing the three highest mountains in England, Wales and Scotland back to back in 72 hours. It will undoubtedly be a challenge undertaken and completed by very few people!
- Snowdon 1085m – The highest point in England and Wales – well known to your team already – not to be underestimated, however not too taxing.
- Crib y Ddysgl – 1065m – Reached relatively easily from the summit of Snowdon.
- Carnedd Llewelyn – A very walkable mountain reached by four different ridges. About an hour drive from Snowdon
- Scafell Pike – Well known to the team, the highest mountain in England – night climb this time around.
- Scafell – Second highest in the UK – walking distance from the summit of Scafell Pike
- Helvellyn – Walk includes Striding Edge – not for the feint hearted and will need to be risk assessed before the event – alternative routes are available!!
- Ben Nevis – Well known to the team already – will be tough after six summits
- Ben Macdui – Really Tough! The second highest mountain in Britain, Ben Macdui is in the centre of the arctic-like Cairngorms plateau – a much wilder place than Ben Nevis. Climbed equally frequently from both Deeside and Speyside, the summit is said to be haunted by the wraith-like Old Grey Man.
- Braeriach – Super Tough! The third highest mountain in Britain, Braeriach is perhaps the finest of the Cairngorms. Reaching its vast summit plateau requires a long approach walk – this remains a truly wild place – whilst all around the plateau are a vast range of dramatic and beautiful corries.
