August Bank Holiday. The Scramblers' National 3 Peaks In 3 Days Deposit £125 on RSVP This one is for the fit hillwalkers amongst you who fancy a high-intensity challenge with a head for heights! We'll be taking a completely different approach to the UK's three highest peaks of Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon. Instead of the traditional 24-hour race against the clock, we'll be going at a slower pace over 3 days but with a twist as we'll be scrambling up these iconic mountains. Ben Nevis by the Carn Mor Dearg Arete is the finest way to climb the UK's highest mountain. This is a truly spectacular route incorporating 2 Munros and will live long in the memory. Scafell Pike is iconic, not only because it is the highest in England, but also because of its history, position and astonishing views. Alfred Wainwright described it as "the Mecca of all weary pilgrims in Lakeland......the ultimate, the supreme, the top of Scafell Pike". We'll hike to the summit of Scafell Pike via the lesser known Corridor route thus avoiding the crowds on the Wasdale side. And finally to Snowdon, or Yr Wyddfa, where there are a few scrambling options but the standout winner is the knife-edge ridge of Crib Goch from Pen y Pass. These routes are MUCH tougher than the regular routes and you will need to be fit hillwalkers to complete the challenge. Our client to guide ratio for scrambling is a maximum of 4 clients per 1 guide and we will only be able to accommodate 7 clients on this exclusive challenge. You will be accompanied by 2 experienced and friendly mountain leaders, Gareth Clarke and Pete Hyde, who will do everything to help you succeed. Accommodation: We have booked 3 nights' hostel accommodation in Fort William, the beautiful Borrowdale valley in the Lake District and Pen y Pass at the foot of Snowdon. The hostels are well-equipped with a lounge, restaurant/dining room, drying room, self-catering kitchen and a licensed bar. Meals: We will provide provisions for a simple breakfast and provisions for packed lunches for you to make up yourselves. For evening meals we will stop for food en route to the next night's accommodation. Cost: Total cost of trip is £425 £125 deposit payable on RSVP, £300 balance payable by 23rd June to GO Venture LTD, account No 71133062 sort code 602232 Please use reference N3P19 and message me to confirm receipt of balance.
