Welsh 3000s

39 km / 24 miles

Conwy, Gwynedd
This crossing of the 15 Snowdonian summits over 3,000ft, taking in the ranges of the Carneddau, the Glyders and the Snowdon Massif itself involves 12,000ft of ascent with much rough ground and some exposed scrambling. If that challenge is not enough the Welsh 3000s Double Crossing (28 summits) is also available.
