3 Peaks (4 days)
This is a classic challenge in its own right. It is possible to do all three in 24 hours, but for many this is not the reason why they want to do these three classic mountains. So why not take a day to do each and have time to enjoy the walking and the scenery? Let Eden Outdoor Adventures get you there and then guide you to each summit by some interesting routes.
Starting from Glen Nevis we take the main tourist route to the summit, but unlike other three peakers we then carry on and tackle the classic ridge of Carn Mor Dearg Arete and then descend down to the Allt a Mhuilinn and through forest to the North Face Car Park.
There are a number of options open to the walker to gain the highest peak in England. We can start in Borrowdale and ascend via the Corridor Route before dropping down into Wasdale. There is even the option to take in its neighbour, and second highest mountain, Scafell. Another option is to head up to the Scafell PIke via Great End and either return to Borrowdale via the Corridor Route or take in Scafell and then drop down to Wasdale.
Take in all Snowdon has to offer by doing the classic Snowdon Horseshoe. Ascend on to Crib Goch and traverse its airy ridge on to Crib y Ddysgl before coming to the summit of Snowdon. From here descend to Y Llewedd, a great shield of rock overlooking Llyn Llydaw. From this final summit we descend back to Pen Y Pass.
Variations for each day can be made depending on how people feel and the weather. For those who want a real challenge why not try it in winter! Ideal for those with some winter walking experience and a good level of fitness.
A route with a large amount of ascent and descent, requiring a good level of fitness and previous summer hill walking experience.
