SF Mountain Challenge Wales
The SF Mountain Challenge is back but this time in North Wales
15th May 2021 – £40 per person
Booking instructions below
The challenge is been lead by qualified Mountain Leaders. Therefore you can relax into the experience knowing you are on the correct route and in safe hands. We have a group starting early group and then the second group setting off slightly later.
We will be summiting the tallest peak in Wales, Yr Wyddfa, otherwise known as Snowdon and completing the horse shoe taking in the whole glacial valley from all angles. We will meet in Llanberis at 8am and take the bus to Pen-y-Pass where we will be staring our route.
The Snowdon horse shoe is a 7 mile loop involving hiking over beautiful mountainous terrain with mind blowing views. We will take in some classic welsh ridge lines and summit the magnificent Yr Wyddfa.
How will the challenge work
We are aware that some people want to try and do the challenge a fast as possible and there are others who want to take it steady.
Therefore, we will be running the challenge in two groups. The first group will set off at 8am and aim to enjoy the route sticking to the more established trails. Group one is ideal for those with little or no experience with exposure to hights.
The second group will start the challenge at 10am and aim to catch up with group one. The second group will also face exposure and a less defined trail, not for the faint hearted.
This means the group setting off first can enjoy a nice steady pace throughout the day. The group setting of second can push a little harder and attempt to close the two hour gap.
We aim to finish together, the first and second group merging before the end of the day finishing together as a team.
Depending on what you want from your experience will determine which group you walk with. Your Mountain leaders will also consider your experience and which group they feel you will have the best experience in.
