About the 15 Peaks
14 of the highest mountains in Wales that have a height of 3,000 feet (914.4 m) or more. Geographically they fall within three ranges, all sufficiently close to making it possible to reach all 15 summits within 24 hours, a journey known as the Welsh 3000s challenge.
The length of this challenge (from the first peak to last) is about 26 miles (42 km), but including the walk to and from any start point, this will total some 30 miles (48 km).
