JDRF Climb 1 for Type 1

Dydd Sadwrn 22nd Mehefin

Snowden, Llanberis Wales LL55 4NY


The three mountain climbs will run simultaneously across the three countries. Choose from either an early morning daytime hike – where you will be able to enjoy spectacular views and scenery and will be rewarded with a picnic lunch at the summit. Or choose a daredevil night-time climb for a completely different experience – taking in a spectacular sunrise the following day as you descend.

Climb 1 for Type 1 is the ultimate climbers bucket list challenge, taking you to the spectacular summits of three of the UK’s tallest mountains. Whether you choose a daytime or night-time challenge, you will always be under the careful supervision of fully-qualified mountain leaders.
