Please bring your own lunch and always pack a variety of foods – both savoury and sweet that will sustain you during the day. Choose complex carbohydrates and whole foods, rather than overly sweet items. Foods like malt loaf, mixed fruit and nuts, cheese and ham, oat cakes, raw fruit bars, dark chocolate, filled wraps, or sausage rolls will last well on the hill and sustain you over a number of hours.

A well earned breakfast will be provided when you arrive back at the community centre, to celebrate your achievements with family and friends.

We recommend you partake in active walking/running/swimming/cycling at least 3 times a week to fully enjoy this mountain walk. We will cover high-level terrain which is rocky and uneven underfoot and remember to include ‘hills’ in any training you do. A sense of humour to cope with any adverse weather conditions is also quite beneficial!

Moel Famau in Denbighshire is a good for beginners to start on those hill climbs!

Below, we have created a basic training plan to follow if you wish to do so! You can add all your own training plans and share with your team.
Whilst training is important, please REMEMBER TO REST!


Regardless of the time of year, we may experience clouds, rain, wind, sun, and even snow! The temperatures can be much cooler higher on the mountain tops, so having layers that you can add to and take off will work. Please ensure you have all the required equipment as specified in the Kit List – this is for your safe enjoyment of the mountain environment, and to protect you from unexpected weather conditions. Your well-experienced and qualified Mountain Leader will carry all necessary group safety equipment.
