The Welsh Three Peaks Challenge is an attempt to climb the highest peaks Wales in 'one go'. These peaks are Snowdon, Cadair Idris and Pen-Y-Fan.

You will be greeted by your leader for the challenge for a briefing and opportunity to ask any questions you might have. Starting with Snowdon on Saturday morning we then transfer to Cadair Idris in mid-Wales for an afternoon climb before completing a night time climb of our final peak, Pen-Y-Fan.
