Climb the highest mountain in Wales at night & support people with dementia. Climbing by torch & moonlight makes this a tough trekking challenge!
Exciting hiking through beautiful and rugged landscapes by the light of the moon
Snowdon (Yr Wyddfa) is the highest mountain in Wales at 1085m and is reputed to be the burial place of a mythical giant.
Hiking to the summit with a team of Alzheimer's Society supporters could be your personal or team challenge for 2020. The spectacular landscapes on the ascent and descent are just reward for the uphill effort! Reaching the top is an uplifting feeling with huge cause for celebration at the finish.
This hike is achievable to most given some training beforehand. The more training you do then more you will enjoy the experience. The route is very gradual however you will be hiking uphill in the dark for hours at a time followed by a period of downhill which can be tough on the knees.
