DIFC Three Peaks Challenge September 2014
13th - 15th September 2014
This is one of the best UK challenges out there! The challenge is to climb 3 of Britain's highest mountains, one after the other, within 24 hours...
This event is now SOLD OUT.
This is an amazing event for a group of you or as a personal challenge.
Starting on Saturday afternoon in Scotland, you will tackle the highest of your 3 peaks first as you ascend Ben Nevis (1344m) the highest mountain in the UK. At the summit take the opportunity to soak up the breathtaking views of the Scottish Highlands before making before heading back down to the minibus and starting the overnight journey across the border and on to the Lake District.
Once in the Lakes you will head for Scafell Pike (978m), the highest mountain in England. To add to the challenge you will be climbing this one in the dark (head torches required) – endeavoring to reach to summit by sunrise – an amazing site not to be missed! Finally you will head off again to climb the highest Mountain in Wales; Snowdon (1085m). Once on the summit there will be time for a quick photo before making the descent down to Llanberis.
