The Classic Welsh Mountain Journey

Are you ready for the 15 highest peaks in Northern Snowdonia - all over 3000ft - in 1 long day?

This may prove to be one of the most challenging routes you can follow in the UK mountains; over rocky and rough terrain in places. With over 4200m of ascent over 3 magnificent mountain ranges, you’ll be forgiven for wanting to be picked up by flying angels towards your last summit!

We set our sights on the Yr Wyddfa/Snowdon massif first, and descend steeply to Nant Peris. We then again ascend sharply to the Glyderau range and parade over its rocky plateau before another rocky descent to the Ogwen Valley for the final tough section over the remote Carneddau range.

There will be highs and more highs over rugged moorland, heaped boulders and narrow ridges.
