Challenge: To walk the Welsh 3000ers (15 highest peaks) in Snowdonia within 24 hours.

Personal challenge: To complete it in 15 hours and make last orders in the pub.

Distance: This is a 24.2 mile (39km) mountain challenge, with a total ascent of 10,886 feet.
29 miles including the walk in to the first summit and walk out from the final summit.

Route: The day starts with an early morning traverse of Crib Goch and ends in the Carneddau having bagged 15 peaks.

Having travelled to places where there is no rescue team (unless you want to wait several days....) I appreaciate our MRT's more than ever. Despite the number of epics I've had over the years, I've stubornly avoided a call out, however for some OVMRT are true life savers. I'll be romping through their call out zone. Please sponsor me and help support a great team.

MISSION COMPLETE:

14 HRS 52 MINS AND GOT TO PUB BEFORE LAST ORDERS & WE WALKED OFF THE HILL IN THE LIGHT!

START CRIB GOCH SUMMIT O6:09
END FOEL FRAS: 21:01

Crib goch was a tad slippy and it's hard to get the brain focusing at 5am! Slowed down a little in the low cloud on the glyders, as nav became difficult, un countable heavy rain & sleet showers & slippery rocks. Blessed with beautiful views from Yr Ellen. Rain stopped and given gorgeous sunset as we reached the final peak. It was like the weather was laughing at us!
