Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I purchased this guide with 'The National 3 Peaks: Taking Up the Challenge' by Steve Williams a week before attempting the three peaks with a friend. Both guides pretty much cover the same ground and I would recommend getting both (which can be read in a single day); but if you would rather get one over the other, this guide is straight to the point and covers the essential information you need to know. The Steve Williams guide covers the same information but also goes in to detail about how he planned and successfully completed the challenge with a friend.

We followed the advice in the guides and climbed the mountains in the order of Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Mount Snowdon however we never climbed them at the recommended times which was our main downfall. We successfully climbed Ben Nevis and Scafell Pike but were faced with climbing Mount Snowdon in the dark instead of Scafell Pike. Despite having previously climbed Snowdon in daylight and being familiar with the mountain, we struggled to navigate it in the dark and turned back after getting lost. Scafell is probably the easiest to navigate out of the three so I would recommend doing that during the night.

I took the advice in the guides to purchase a head torch which I hadn't previously considered and it was useful however I found my Maglite torch to be more useful. Maglite's can be expensive but they are very powerful and durable torches. Whilst the guides recommended getting hydration sacks, I never purchased one, and from experience, I would advise others to use them as I had to keep stopping on the moutains to get water out of my bag. This probably only killed a few minutes here and there but when you're racing against the clock, it all adds up.

This book is a must have if you are planning the National 3 Peaks here in the UK, Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Mount Snowdon. Extremely informative from start to finish with exclusive tips and options to shave time off of the 24 hour guideline if a 3 peaks challenge or excellent for Leisure walking, trekking and hiking. A Great guide on equipment along with clear routes/pathways for each of the peaks. During May 2010 we attempted the National 3 peak challenge with this pocket sized booklet, so easy to carry and light, it turned out to be our Bible for 24 hours, I shall be sending Mr.Smailes a personal 'thank you' for such a great guide book. Don't attempt any of the 3 mountains without it. You have been warned. Stay Safe. 10/10

Handy pocket sized guide. Took this with me on the three peaks walk. Luckily didn't need the guides for descending in bad conditions, but was reassuring to have these. The list of things to take with you also made a good check list. This book is not adequate on it's own (and doesn't pretend to be), but is a good supplement.

I bought this to help me prepare for doing the 3 peaks over a week with my youngest son. It has lots of advice in it - much of it very basic but still worthwhile - and gald I got it - will act as a reminder now.

The booked arrived and was intended as a presi for someone who is doing the 3 Peaks later in 2014.

As I don't take my walking THAT seriously it would not be something to inspire me to do the 3 Peaks, but my friend seems to like the book and, hopefully, finds it useful.
