Essential Information

What are the group sizes?
Our maximum size group is 12 per Mountain Leader, with a minimum of 6 per group

Who will be leading the group?
We employ experienced and fully qualified Mountain Leaders to accompany and lead you. They are Mountain First Aid trained and have extensive experience in leading in the mountains and the three peaks challenge.  They will be ultimately responsible for your safety on the mountain and the rest of the group. They will be carrying full safety equipment and mountain first aid kits with them.

How fit do I need to be?
Training and a good level of mountain walking fitness is definitely required, this is not for the faint-hearted. This is a tough challenge and physically and mentally draining. As much preparation and training you put in beforehand the better chance of success you have.

What is the weather likely to be like?
The mountain weather in the U.K. can be very changeable, it can be Glorious sunshine down at the base but be wet and windy on the summit. It is not uncommon for it to change from clear blues skies to rain and fog in moments. It is important to follow the advice we give and carry the correct kit (please see kit list)

What do you do to protect the environment?
We limit the impact we have on the surrounding environment by remaining on the paths at all times so as not to cause further erosion on the mountain. We will ensure that all rubbish is disposed of responsibly and take all rubbish away with us.
