You'll tackle Snowdon Massif on the first day. Taking an adventurous ridge line alone Crib Goch you'll arrive on the summit of Snowdon before making your descent down the Llanberis Path into Nant Peris. In the evening you'll enjoy a well-deserved dinner with the rest of the team.
After a hearty Welsh breakfast, you'll begin the second day of hiking. A steep start to the day leads to Elidir Fawr, before heading along an undulating ridgeline. In the afternoon you'll arrive at the plateau of Glyderau. The next mountain to tackle in Tryfan - famous amongst the mountaineering community. If you dare, you can even jump from the famous Adam and Eve rocks.
The final day of your hike also has the most 3000ft summits, but once your on the rolling expanse of the Carneddau plateau they come in fairly quick succession. After the initial climb to Pen yr Ole Wen, you'll soon reach Carnedd Dafydd before taking a detour off the main ridge to bag the summit of Yr Elen. Another short but tough hike follows to Carnedd Llewelyn, but from then on you'll hit the last three summits fairly easily - Foel Grach, Carnedd Gwenllian and Foel Fras. From Foel Gras it's gently downhill to the waiting vehicle for transport back to the accommodation for the night.
After a restful morning you'll have breakfast before saying your final goodbye.
