TYPICAL TIMETABLE:

Saturday 7:00am: Scotland Drive

Heading north, into Scotland and on through the magnificent highlands. A drive to truly take your breath away. Finally terminating in Fort William at the foot of the highest mountain in the UK!

 

Saturday 4:00pm: Ben Nevis

Starting with the biggest climb; from Fort William to 1345m; the highest point in Britain; the summit plateau of colossal Ben Nevis. Jaw dropping scenery and incredible views all the way! Ben Nevis Webcam

Target: 2.5 hour climb, 2 hour descent.

 

Sunday 9:00pm: Lakes Drive

6 hours on the minibus finally leads to the picturesque twisty lanes, where Scafell Pike is discovered amidst the stunning western Lakeland District.

 

Sunday 3:00am: Scafell Pike

The highest mountain in England at 978m, has a surprisingly rocky and unrelentingly steep path.This is arguably the toughest part of the test! Often engulfed by mist and with the early part of our climb ahead of a mountain top sunrise, before descending to the minibus for the next leg of our epic journey.

Target: 2.5 hour climb, 2 hour descent.  

 

Sunday 8:00pm: Snowdon Drive


4 hours on we arrive in beautiful North Wales to discover mighty mount Snowdon - the finale to this huge challenge!

 

Sunday 12:00pm: Snowdon

The steep and often narrow Pyg Track heads up above the reservoir of Llyn Llydaw; crossing the causeway and climbing further at the northern tip of Glaslyn. The rise continues with a grueling zig-zag climb, before one last push to the summit for a view far beyond the distant horizon.

This final glorious peak stands at 1085m and is followed by a triumphant descent back our medla presentation and awaiting transport. Snowdon webcam

Target: 2.0hr climb, 2hr descent.

 

Sunday 4:00pm: Finish!

RESPONSIBLE 3 PEAKING:

The 3 Peaks takes a tremendous team effort to complete. The key to successes is in the preparation and planning. It must also be done with responsibility and respect to allow others to continue enjoying both visiting and inhabiting the mountains. There is some negative impact, such as erosion and littering, caused by an increased use of the mountains. Hence we follow the 'Code of Practice for Outdoor Fundraising Events', developed by the Institute of Fundraising written in consultation with a range of groups including the National Park Authorities and the National Trust, who owns Scafell Pike and part of Snowdonia.
