What are The Three Peaks?
The National Three Peaks Challenge was created in 1926 when members of the Fell & Rock Climbing Club successfully summited the highest peaks in Scotland, England and Wales in 24 hours.
That first challenge started on the summit of Ben Nevis and ended on the summit of Snowdon but most modern challenges include the ascent and descent of each peak. Therefore the completed challenge usually starts at the foot of Ben Nevis and ends once you've descended Snowdon, with Scafell Pike in between.
Ben Nevis, Scotland (1,345 metres)
Scafell Pike, England (978 metres)
Snowdon, Wales (1,085 metres)
