Lakeland 3000s Challenge 2019

There are 4 mountains in the Lake District that are over 3000 feet. They are Skiddaw, Helvellyn, Scafell, and the highest mountain in England, Scafell Pike.

Join Ascents of Adventure on a 1, 2 or 3 day walking adventure that will walk up all 4 of these hills. For the 3 day trip we start with Skiddaw on day 1. The next day we tackle Helvellyn via the Grade 1 scramble of Striding Edge, where a bit of a head for heights is required and where hands as well as feet will be used for some sections. We then descend Swirral Edge to finish a memorable day. On day 3 we finish the trip with an ascent of Scafell and the highest mountain in England, Scafell Pike. The way between the Scafells is steep and rocky but a sneaky route up via Foxes Tarn gives a small amount of hands on scrambling to link these two summits.

If you've never been on a walking holiday before this could be the ideal introduction. I have also used this trip as a practice run for the 3 Peaks Challenge.

Don't panic if you haven't got loads of kit. You will need a pair of well fitting and broken in hill walking boots or shoes. You'll need clothing to keep you dry and warm and also a few other items like a hat and gloves, lunch and a drink for each day and a little rucksack to carry it all in.

Lakeland 3000s 1 day Challenge

To complete the Lakeland 3000s in a continous walk is a huge and epic adventure. 45+ miles and 10000+ feet of ascent make this harder than the National 3 Peaks, Yorkshire 3 Peaks or Welsh 14 Peaks.

Please contact me to register interest for a mighty 24 hours in the Lakeland hills. Fully guided with vehicle support at road crossings.

Proposed date for this adventure 23 - 24 June 2018, Price tbc
