Taking on a mountain at night is certainly a challenge, so why not make that mountain the highest mountain in Wales and make it a really good challenge! Our challenge is to climb Snowdon via the Llanberis Path and reach the summit shortly before sunset. Weather permitting, we will then enjoy a spectacular sunset. We descend back down the Llanberis path into the town, for a celebration completion drink.
This challenge event is a great choice for mixed ability groups, and for groups that want a more compact challenge event then some of the others above (approx. 7 hours).
We can can cater for groups of friends, companies and charities.
Footwear: Walking boots have to be worn.
Socks: Walking socks, cotton socks should not be worn. Bringing spare socks is a good idea.
Trousers and tops: Walking trousers fleece and base layers. Avoid cotton, synthetic materials are good and lightweight clothing is better as it dries faster and is easier to walk in when wet.
Waterproofs: You must bring a (properly) waterproof jacket and trousers which will also act as wind proofs. Lightweight waterproofs are better as they do not become waterlogged, dry faster and take up less space in your bag.
Rucksack: This does not need to be too big. Up to 45 litres will be fine but you should get away with a 25 litre sack.
Spare clothes: It is a good idea to bring a bag of spare clothes. Definitely a full spare set of comfy clothes for on the minibus and a spare set for each mountain in case it is a wet weekend.
Water: Keeping hydrated is very important however water is very heavy so you do not want to carry too much on the mountain. We recommend around 2 - 3 litres be taken on the hill.
A few extras could include:
Walking poles -may be useful. They can especially help with tired knees on descent.
Deep heat / ibuprofen cream.
Music - Some people find that putting their MP3 on can get them through a tough period on the challenge.
Suncream and sunglasses if appropriate.
We operate a “leave no trace” policy.
We always follow the footpaths and we ask that you do not walk off the footpath or attempt to take any short cuts on the mountain. No litter must be left. This includes banana skins and apple cores and cigarette ends. All litter must be taken back to the minibus.
For your safety and that of the rest of the group you must follow instructions and advice given to you by your guide. If you do not then you may put at risk the safety and or continued participation of yourself and or the entire group.
