Walk all the 3000ft Mountains in Wales

Walk all the mountains in Wales over 3000ft above sea level

The Welsh 3000ft'ers comprise 15 Mountains that rise above 915m (3000ft) with at least 30m (100ft) of reascent on all sides.

The highest point is Snowdon (Yr Wyddfa) and all are within the Snowdonia National Park in North Wales:

Most fell walkers walk the Welsh 3000ft'ers in just 4 walks. It is very difficult to walk all 15 3000ft tops in a single day - unless you can tackle 52km (32.5 mls) with 4,549m (14,921ft) of ascent. Our walk timing algorithm suggests this would take over 27 hours.
