Now in it’s fourth year, V3K Ultra crosses all the mountains over 3,000ft in Wales, also known as Welsh 3,000s or 15 (formerly 14) Peaks, it’s a classic route loved by anybody with any sense. It is also unique as a UK route because of its successive 2-3000ft ascents and descents (plus one more near 3,000ft and many smaller ones). V3K Ultra starts at Nant Gwynant then climbs over the first ridge of Bwlch Main to Snowdon, second and third ridges of Carnedd Ugain and the knife edged arrete of Crib Goch then down via North Ridge. Next the Glyderau, starting with a huge slog up Elidir Fawr, then Y Garn, Glyder Fawr, Glyder Fach and Tryfan. Then the third and final section which takes in 7 of the Carneddau, Pen yr Ole Wen via the track leading to Glan Dena over Carnedd Dafydd, Yr Elen, Carnedd Llewelyn, Foel Grach, Carnedd Gwenellian (marked Carnedd Uchaf on older maps), and Foel-fras, over Drum and down following the fence over Drosgl and then descend into the village of Rowen for celebratory food and cheer.
