What is the 3 Peaks Challenge?
There is nearly half a century of tradition involved with the challenge and lots of variations in style. The typical challenge involves climbing

Scafell Pike England's biggest mountain at 978 meters.
Snowdon, the biggest mountain in Wales at 1085 meters.
To complete the classic 24 hour challenge you must start at the foot of Ben Nevis and finish at the foot of Snowdon having reached all three summits.
