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:
- seven in The Carneddau
- five in The Glyders (or Glyderau) Area and
- three in The Snowdon Area
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.
To walk Welsh 3000ft'ers the 4 walks you should walk are:
To walk Carnedd Llewelyn, Carnedd Dafydd, Pen yr Ole Wen and Yr Elen use walk
To walk Foel Grach, Foel-fras and Garnedd Uchaf use walk
To walk Glyder Fawr, Glyder Fach, Y Garn (Glyders), Elidir Fawr and Tryfan use walk
To walk Snowdon (Yr Wyddfa), Garnedd Ugain (Crib y Ddysgl) and Crib Goch use walk
If you are new to the concept of 'Peak Bagging' - any of these 6 would be a really good place to start your collection.
