£  4.99 The National 3 Peaks - 'Taking up the challenge' - Discovery Guide
  Undertaking the National Three Peaks walk has become a hugely popular challenge. Many 'challengers' are motivated by a wish to raise money for a charitable cause. But as well as that, more and more people are seeking personal milestones in their lives; seeking to test themselves, their stamina, their grit and determination. For many the National Three Peaks provides one such milestone. But it can be even more. It can be great fun, an adventure, a memorable, enjoyable experience of team and individual achievement. For a few it can even be a life changing event.
Sadly for others it can be a failure, a disappointment. One of the most common reasons for this outcome is preparation – or rather the lack of it – combined with mistaken or unrealistic expectations about the event and perhaps even themselves. The Three Peaks Challenge is never going to be a walk in the park. But with proper preparation and know-how it is eminently attainable for most people.
That's the reason for this book. When Steve's team started to plan for the challenge they found information was readily available on routes, timings, advice on training and hillcraft. But nowhere could they find such advice combined with a full account of a successful challenge attempt. What they really wanted and needed was to get a true feel for what they would be facing. They wanted to gauge their capabilities against others who had already succeeded, to identify with the highs and lows and anticipate or forestall their own.
This then is their story, plus suggestions on training, walking routes (including GPS track logs from the actual paths walked), driving routes, navigation, equipment, meals, and accommodation. Their Challenge Plan ran to 11 pages of text and checklists. It is included for you to copy.

£  6.95 2000 PLUS WALES - Mountains over 2000 ft - Cordee Guide
A comprehensive, full-colour map of all Welsh summits over 2000ft based on information from The Mountains of England and Wales - Volume 1 Wales by John and Anne Nuttall - an invaluable tool for outdoor enthusiasts to plan their next ascent and track their progress.
This first edition (and companion to 2000 PLUS ENGLAND also by the same author), depicts all 190 summits in Wales over 2000ft, comprising 93 main peaks and 97 subsidiary tops. Also included for the enthusiast are 91 minor summits over 2000ft but with insufficient re-ascent to merit similar status.
Mountain profiles are interspersed between a comprehensive list of all summits, providing an instantly recognisable silhouette of the mountain ranges and their relative positions. The list also includes heights and a symbol to capture summits attained. Layer tints highlight the relief of the rugged mountain landscape of Wales and the geographical distribution of all summits. All this within a glossy protective card cover.
Further information includes road and rail routes; hostels; coverage of relevant Ordnance Survey 1:50,000 Landranger maps; a simple co-ordinate reference system to relate the summits to the map and vice versa. This is the most comprehensive map of the Welsh mountains available.
To promote safety in the hills, information about Mountain Rescue England and Wales (MREW) can be found on the inside cover
