HawkeyeHuffSnowdon - the Pyg Track  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 18, 2000


Took the Pyg track going up in poor weather. Got to top in zero visibility. Walked down next to train (on Llanberis path) and caught it (the train) a mile down the path. It was the best $6(pounds) I ever spent as I was very cold. Enjoyed a hot bath at the Victoria Hotel in Llanberis! What a great trip on my first time to Great Britain as I was also able to climb Ben Nevis three days before.

Still some people climbing at 7 pm with rain and Wind on the top (no more than 7 degrees Celsius). Not the perfect weather but we made it!

easy hike. the final part is steeper while there's quite a long flat approach on a good road up to +/-600m from where start the real path. Lots of people, for sure other routes are more interesting

cheetah262Sunny Snowdon!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 25, 2014


Up Rhyd Ddu and back down via the Aran/southern quarry area (not one of the official 6 routes but a great path through the deserted quarry, ending at the Rhyd Ddu Parking).
Yes, crowded at the top but that is to be expected since a train goes up to the summit. Kinda cool to see the train crawling up the angled slope as we hiked up. Sunny weather gave us incredbile views all around....a great beginning for our wanderings in North Wales!

wanderweg83Rainy Day on Snowdon  Sucess!


Climbed Snowdon as the final peak in a 3 Peaks charity challenge. Nasty rain and wind all the way up. But, it was still an enjoyable climb. I've never been so glad to get into dry clothes after!

Date Climbed: Sep 12, 1990


I recall climbing this in the early 90s and it was a lot of fun. The weather was damp and very foggy with practically no one on the trail except us.

Very crowded, had to park 2 miles down the road. Climbed the peak in 2 hours, 2 hours descent. Way too many people. High winds on the ridge.

First time must have been summer 1970 via Miners track. Most enjoyable via Grib Goch Ridge & on to complete the Snowdon Horseshoe.

MountainDuckUp Miners, Down Pyg - Spectacular Views  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 5, 2010


A fun & rewarding walk if your OK with the huge crowds. I did a few detours & scrambled up a few fairly steep rock faces to avoid the people, but would not recommend that in bad weather. The view from the top is breathtakingly beautiful.

Trevers89Great weekend away  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 20, 2011


Ascended via the Crib Goch/Horseshoe route then descent along the Miner's Track. Due to the weather we never saw the peak till we were stood right on it. Great day out!

millsiconic !


Possibly the most famous mountain in the UK, with it's train ferrying thousands of visitors to the summit every year. Personally I would not go up in the summer as there are so many tourists on it.

Climbed guiding a group of 11 (not everyone got to the top). Mist around 900 meters, then rain and a lot of wind at the final ridge. Started at 13:30. Back to the parking of the Peny Pass at 18:15.

conflaxFeels like home  Sucess!
Have summited Snowdon about 17 times and it always feels like coming home. Yes it's crowded, yes it's commercial in the summer, but there is such variety. Crib Goch has to be the best route - as long as the weather's good! Do it in the winter, in the snow with the cafe and train closed, for a different perspective.

pegasuslI know it gets "busy" but I do love it....  Sucess!


Have done a few differemt ascents now, but my two absolute favourites have to be the Snowdon HorseShoe, and the Snowdon Ranger path.
