Starting in the July edition of Trek & Mountain is our new series called ‘Great British Mountain Days’ in which we feature an epic day out in the hills each month, combining walking, scrambling and even a bit of climbing. In the first of the series, Paul Lewis of Peak Mountaineering describes one of his favourite days out in Snowdonia, a route that he calls the ‘Ogwen Triple’ which combines several classic scrambles including the legendary Cneifion Arete.
To celebrate the launch of ‘Great British Mountain Days’ we are offering one lucky reader the chance to spend a day out with Paul tackling the Ogwen Triple, during which he will give instruction on how to safely tackle the Grade 2 and 3 scrambles that you’ll encounter. The day you’ll spend in the Ogwen Valley (as with all our Great British Mountain Days) is not only an awesome day out in its own right, but also great training for overseas trekking or mountaineering trips, so don’t miss this chance to polish up on your skills and fitness!
To enter the competition, all you need to do is answer the question below and your name will be entered into the draw. The closing date is 31st July and the winner will be announced on 15th August.
