Topic - Alternative to 3 peaks national challenge

drolex - on 18 Sep 2013
A French friend of mine (I already feel I have to apologize) coming to the UK next year tries to get me into doing the three peaks national challenge. For several reasons, I am actively refusing to take part in these cheesy shenanigans.

I'd like to find an alternative, but it would need to:
- sound sexy: Yorkshire three peaks would be a good alternative in my opinion, but unfortunately the peaks are almost unheard of for un-british people. Poor guys, I know. So something including Ben Nevis or Snowdon would be ideal
- include at least 2 peaks because "Ben Nevis is only a big hill really" (he's from the Alps)
- not involve pointless travels. Going there is fine but I don't want to spend a night sailing from Ben Nevis to Cuillin ridge or something silly like that
- the difficulty is secondary, but the maximum level should be something like the Yorkshire 3 peaks I reckon
- not include any joke about cheese, surrender monkeys or wine made with antifreeze. That will be the hard part.

Any suggestion?
