stridebirdA fine airy arrete  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 1, 1981
My father took my brother and I on this route when I was a boy. I have done it many times since in summer and winter and it is always impressive, a gem of the British Isles.

Date Climbed: Jun 5, 1971

markhallam

One of my favourite mountains in the UK - with its famous arete. I must have traversed the ridge half a dozen times following first time somewhere around 1971 - date is a guess.

Trevers89East Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 20, 2011

Trevers89

Climbed via the East Ridge. Thick fog and a strong crosswind made this very dramatic. The short climb at the end isn't difficult but is very exposed so don't look down!

As the start of the Horseshoe it was as dramatic as I could have possibly expected.

Date Climbed: Jul 7, 2003
Did this with a bunch of guys from Reading Mountaineering Club on a superb day - far horizons. I can't remember the date or much of the detail but an overall impression of a fantastic experience.

I climbed Crib Goch on the way to Snowdon from Pen-Y-Pass. A very interesting route...and apparently pretty underestimated, at least by quite a few of the people I saw there on that day with pretty inadequate shoes. It's definitely a "I+" route, and, contrary to so many routes of this kind in the Austrian Alps for instance, there isn't the slightest assistance such as metal ropes or ladders or anything of the kind, probably out of principle, which I would fully understand.
I loved Snowdonia when I was there, and I hope to go back someday!

Followed the Snowdon Horseshoe route. Very busy, but to be expected on a summer saturday. Still, excellent conditions and a very enjoyable scramble, the first peak bagged that day.

Attila the HunNice ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Dec 23, 2004

Attila the Hun

Did the arete as part of the way up Snowden. Visibility wasn't great, but I remember being struck by the fact that I could see a crow soaring almost directly below me, when I looked over the edge at one point.

Perfect conditions, no clouds and not a breath of wind. A really good fun ridge.

DrJonnieBad slip  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 29, 2005

DrJonnie

Descending the sharp part of the ridge, my boot twisted over and the weight of my 35 lb pack increased the forces causing a severe strain and stopped me doing the 3000s.
It will not deter me from going back though.

Climbed in conjunction with Snowdon. Part of the Adventure Peaks Christmas celebration and Everest Expedition Team gathering. Foggy, slippery and no visibility most of the way.

Nice exposure. Still feel a bit uneasy when I think on being on that ridge.
