What's going on
Nine Peaks Challenge – Thursday 15th June – Monday 19th June 2017
This event is organised by Advocate Events.
This one is not for the fainted hearted…
Nine mountains back to back with a bonus peak (Cairngorm) thrown in for good measure! The top three highest mountains in Scotland, England and Wales in 72 hours!
A huge undertaking with a breathtaking time already set by the only team to have completed it!
Braeriach (1296m) – Super tough! The third highest mountain in the Britaish Isles, Braeriach is perhaps the finest of the Cairngorms. Reaching its vast summit plateau requires a long approach walk – this remains a truly wild place – whilst all around the plateau are a vast range of dramatic and beautiful corries.
Ben Macdui (1309m) – Really tough! The second highest mountain in UK, Ben Macdui is in the centre of the arctic-like Cairngorms plateau – a much wilder place than Ben Nevis.
Ben Nevis (1345m) – The highest mountain in the British Isles – will be tough after six summits!
Helvellyn (950m) – Walk includes Striding Edge – not for the feint hearted!
Scafell Pike (978m) – The highest mountain in England – will be a night climb!
Scafell (964m) – The Second highest in the England – walking distance from the summit of Scafell Pike.
Snowdon (1085m) – The highest point in England and Wales. Not to be underestimated, however not too taxing.
Crib y Ddysgl (1065m) – Reached relatively easily from the summit of Snowdon.
Carnedd Llewelyn (1064m) – A very walkable mountain reached by four different ridges. About an hour drive from Snowdon.
