The challenge starts on Saturday climbing Ben Nevis (1344m) the highest mountain in the UK. Once on the summit you will be rewarded with breathtaking views of the Scottish Highlands before making your descent back to the minibus and starting the overnight journey to the Lake District.
Scafell Pike (978m), the highest mountain in England is next and head torches are needed here as the climb takes place during the night with the aim of reaching the summit for sunrise.
The final challenge takes on the highest mountain in Wales, Snowdon (1085m). Once on the summit there will be time for a quick photo before making the descent down to Llanberis.
Upon completion of your challenge you will be transferred to your accommodation for a night of celebration and rest.
