Description

Nestled into the northwestern corner of Wales, Snowdonia National Park is home to the tallest mountains in Wales and some of the tallest in the United Kingdom.

Boasting 14 different peaks, each with an elevation of more than 900 meters, hiking them all is the goal of many outdoor adventurers who visit the region. And, over the course of our three days together, this is exactly what we will do!

Our fist day will be a long one, filled with a lot of ascents. Starting first thing in the morning, we will summit Tryfan, Glyderau Fach, Glyder Fawr, Y Garn and Elidir Fawr.

Our second day will be another long one, filled with even more ascents, and will take us through some of the wildest parts of Snowdonia. We will climb Pen Yr Ole Wen, Carnedd Dafydd, Yr Elen, Carnedd Llewelyn, Foel Grach and Foel Fras.

On the final day, we will make fewer ascents, but the day will still be packed with excitement as we traverse knife edge ridges and finish off the trip by summiting Snowdon – the tallest mountain in Wales. On the way to reaching the top of the country, we will climb Crib Goch and Crib y Ddysgl too.

Keep in mind that the weather, which is notoriously volatile here, will determine what we can do. Add some extra days either side of the trip in case we are rained out on one day.

So what are you waiting for? Book now for this memorable and thrilling 3-day mountaineering adventure up the 14 tallest mountains in Wales!

If you like the look of this trip, but are looking for something a bit more laid back, then I think you will also enjoy my 1+ day mountain hiking adventures in Snowdonia, for all levels!

Mountain Guide

I hold a Mountaineering Instructor Certificate (MIC). I am fully qualified to guide and instruct all aspects of mountaineering and climbing in the UK throughout the year. Also, I am a full member of the Mountain Training Association (MTA) and the Association of Mountaineering Instructors (AMI).

I love climbing and this passion has taken me all over the world, even to the summit of Mount Everest. I have also climbed in the Andes, as well as in the Alps, Norway and Canada. I reached the summit of Mount Everest on May 2001, as a member of the RAF Mountain Rescue Service Everest North Ridge expedition.

I first started mountaineering in Scotland with the RAF Mountain Rescue Service, over 20 years ago. Since then, I haven't stopped climbing and exploring new mountains in the UK and abroad. I have been a RAF Mountain Rescue Team Leader and also the Chief Instructor for 5 years. I have also climbed all the Munros, the Scottish peaks above 3000 feet.

I love climbing around North Wales and the rest of the UK. We have so many amazing climbing and scrambling spots to discover in this area! I enjoy taking my clients there for rock climbing, scrambling and mountain skills courses or for a guided day out.

We can set up a program according to your level and wishes. Contact me and we can start planning your next mountain adventure right away!

Dewi was great..! I really struggled with self motivation. Dewi believed in me. A few rests on the way up & we made it. Honestly the views were breathtaking..! One of the best things I have done in the UK. Dewi was a real asset to the company & very knowledgable. Definitely recommend booking a guide.
