Welsh 3000s

The 14 Peaks / The 15 Peaks

More extreme than the National Three Peaks Challenge, the Welsh 3000s involves climbing all mountains in Wales over 3000 feet. Given the difficulty of this Challenge and the lower popularity that other challenges, there is no official set time. Typically most would attempt the Welsh 3000s Challenge in twenty-four hours, while experienced climbers should set themselves twelve hours.
