This is our second new route for 2020 and is for those who are looking to take their challenge further, try something new and get out of their comfort zone. The multi-peakers will take on 4 peaks in the Snowdon Massif showing you the great sights of North Snowdonia before approaching the top of Yr Wyddfa itself.
You can choose to take on the multi-peak route in either one or two days. The two day route will split after the fourth peak, and you will join the Snowdon Climb participants on Sunday to complete the final and highest peak, Snowdon.
This event is the toughest of our three options and replaces our Welsh 3 Peaks challenge from previous years.
Each participant is required to pay an entry fee of £45 and we ask that you set yourself a minimum target of £250 to support vital prostate cancer research.
Every participant receives a t-shirt, snacks, water, route maps along with the support of designated safety marshals. Transport is provided to the start of each challenge. On top of that, you receive training and fundraising support from our events team.
This route will take you from our event base at Royal Victoria Hotel through the outskirts of Llanberis itself and quickly up into the surrounding mountain tops.

Setting off from the hotel, you will head past the Pen Ceuanant /Snowdon Café, over the Snowdon Mountain Railway and on to the base of your first mountain, Moel Eilio. Walking along a grassed track, you will reach the broad crossroad at Bwlch y Croes, where one of our safety team will point you towards the main path towards the summit.
After a rest at the summit, you head off along the south-east ridge and then up and down the prominent peaks of Foel Gron and Foel Goch. Reaching the pass, Bwlch Maesgwm, between Foel Goch and Moel Cynghorion you will have been on the move for around 5 hours now, with a steep ascent ahead.
After reaching the peak of Moel Cynghorion, you will head down to join the Snowdon Ranger path and begin your ascent of Yr Wyddfa (Snowdon).
The journey back to base, once you have reached the Snowdon summit, is via the Llanberis path.
