Accommodation – Accommodation is at the beautiful Helyg bunkhouse. In the heart of the Ogwen Valley with superb views of Tryfan, Helyg is steeped in the history of British climbing. It was the first climbing hut in the UK and was used as a base by the pioneers of British climbing in the 1920’s for their early ascents, particularly on LLiwedd and Tryfan. Later it was used as a training base for the 1953 Everest expedition. More details here – http://www.climbers-club.co.uk/venues/helyg-ogwen/
Transport – Mini bus transport is provided to the challenge start and back to the hut each day. This means you can leave your vehicle at the hut parking all weekend and just enjoy the hiking without having worry about logistics.
Mountain Guiding – Mountain guiding across the Welsh 3000’s. Dave Talbot an experienced mountain instructor will guide you across the mountain summits.
