Each one of the 10 peaks is over 3000ft, and grouped into three distinct ranges of hills; the Snowdon Massif, the Glyders, and The Carneddau.

We shall set off early on Challenge Day 1 on our climb heading for Snowdon and Garnedd Ugain, before dropping down to Pen Y Pass. Then we shall climb back up the far side of the valley and up on to Glyder Fawr, and the short walk across to Glyder Fach. We then have a short track back to Glyder Fawr before continuing on to the peak of Y Garn, and the final descent back into Nant Peris. We shall then return to our base to take a hearty meal after a full day's trekking. On Challenge Day 2 our route begins with a stiff climb and short scramble on to the Carneddau before some stunning ridge walking above the Ysgolion Duon (Black Ladders) and over the twin peaks of the Carneddau - Llewellyn and Dafydd the princes of medieval Wales. The last descent involves a short scramble section before returning to the valley bottom and either back home or, if you have selected to stay an extra night, to your accommodation.
