Trek Report by Satish Shah

Considering the weather we had success on our epic adventure challenge.

All the three mountains climbed well within the 14 hours suggested time so we are treating the

Climbing part as success. Next year hopefully can complete the whole event within 24 hours.

Total time to complete including road journey was from 24.34 to 26.30 hours

Funds raised to date: approx £1000

The road journey took longer then expected due to road works

Driving long distance was by volunteer drivers

The event was fun and adventurous.

NEXT YEAR MORE PARTICIPATORS AND VOLUNTEERS WANTED!


The Peaks

Ben Nevis

Ben Nevis, the highest of the three peaks at 1344 metres (4409 ft), has only one main path, the path to Ben Nevis starts close to sea level, meaning much greater vertical ascent.

Scafell Pike

While Scafell Pike has several paths, most Three Peaks Challengers will begin at Wasdale Head, to the North of Wast Water.

Snowdon

While Snowdon has many paths with varying difficulty, most Three Peaks Challengers will follow either the Pyg Track or Miners Track, leaving from the Pen-y-Pass car park, on the A4086.
