Lake District 3000 Footers

The Lake District is home to four mountains that stand over 3000 feet. These mountains can be hiked to provide an exciting challenge.
The collective name for this event is known as the ‘Lake District 3000 Footers’. The four 3000 peaks are:

• Scafell Pike 3208ft
• Scafell 3164ft
• Helvellyn 3112ft
• Skiddaw 3054 ft.

  

Options:

The challenge can either be done in one or two days. It goes without saying that to complete the 3000 Footer challenge in one day, is only advised for a ‘hill’ fit group. Possibly the type of group who have put the training in beforehand and feel they want to be pushed a little more.
The two-day option is still challenging but a little more relaxed, and this is normally the preferred option for groups, as it breaks the challenge down into 2 x 8 days.
The challenge will test a fit party, and it should not be under estimated if trying to do this in one day. Some time spent in the mountains before hand is recommended.

Accommodation & Clothing:

PB Mountaineering offers fully supported packages, we can organise everything for you accommodation, transport, food and refreshments if you wish, or you may prefer to organise this yourself. Just get in touch to discuss your preferences. We do not hard sell! And will offer you unbiased genuine and hopefully helpful advice.

We do expect people to bring their own walking equipment for the challenge. A kit list will be sent to you once booking has been made. If you need to hire any equipment then this is an option. Also if you need to buy any equipment for the challenge, then we have an agreement with one of the local outdoor shops in the area, where a substantial discount is given to customers booking with PB Mountaineering.
