August Bank Holiday. The Scramblers' National 3 Peaks In 3 Days

Coventry Rail Station

£425.00

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[masked] sort code[masked] Please use reference N3P19 and message me to confirm receipt of balance.

The Peak District National Park, the UK’s first, packs a staggering amount of wild terrain in a relatively small area. Vast moorland merges with gritstone cliffs that dramatically jut out from the fields of heather, while dry stonewalls cut across the rolling hills and verdant forest, only interrupted by the quaint villages that dot the valley floors. Over 3 days you’ll learn to cheat gravity as you climb to the top of the Peak District’s most iconic crag and realise that what goes up must eventually come down. Quite literally trying the ropes as you abseil back down to earth. The Peak District is a mecca for trail hounds searching for the next bit of single track or bridleway, and you won’t be disappointed, whether you’re a novice or a pro. The mountain biking is the best in the country, and the stunning scenery we ride through is the icing on the cake. We’ll reach the highest summit in the Dark Peak, traversing by foot across its beguiling moon-scaped top, before descending along the Pennine Way. Finally, we’ll snake our way up a remote gorge, scrambling, swimming and jumping our way through this Area of Outstanding Beauty.

This stunning 15 mile hike sets out from Hassocks station, initially walking through a wooded area, and with some hills along the way. Once we arrive at Clayton we will head up onto the South Downs Way, and on a clear day we will enjoy panoramic views.

This is due to its spectacular views of the surrounding countryside, and steep sides. We will walk along the South Downs Way for several miles before arriving at the pretty rural villages of Upper Beeding and Bramber. From here, we will drop down towards Shoreham-By-Sea, picking up the trail which follows the River Adur all the way into town.
