I consider this the mountain that started my climbing. After this mountain, I began backpacking in the eastern US, then eventually made it to some bigger peaks in the west and abroad.

Date Climbed: Aug 9, 2003

I climbed this with my wife on a hot sunny day. We had a blast on the horseshoe. We both particularly enjoyed the scramble on Crib Goch. Although it was quite jarring to reach the summit and run into hordes of tourists who had taken the train to the summit.

Hiked this during my time in Wales (1990). Not sure any more what route. Spent a few weekends beforehand waiting for a good weather report. Didn't happen - of course. Eventually decided to just go and got poured on all day long...

Great mountain, shame about the cafe, the railway, the litter and the crowds. Otherwise top stuff really.

I've summitted 3 times, always via Crib Goch. The last time was as the finale peak to the 14 summits route which I did over a few days.
Each of the 3 occasions has been gloriously sunny with great views.

Climbed up the Crib Goch route and along ridge to the summit. Mostly whiteout, then cleared about 15 minutes after arriving at summit for nice views of the area. Decended Pyg route back to Pen Y Pass.

Can't remember the day exactly, but it was the same day the local Murdoch rag reported a young man fell 400 feet off a cornice and survived.

Fun for all the family! More routes than sheep, and that's saying something. Ascents possible even in the worst conditions. Can't say fairer than that.

Crib Goch was scary exposure (first time for me really) but a very fun route. Summit was packed on a very very nice day

Climbed Snowdon with my father about 6 years ago. I am not shure what route it was but we went via. a ridge that was very steep on both sides. Had an awsom time but was a little PO'ed when I saw that there was a train to the top. What a way to deface a mountain!

Not my first trip up Snowdon, but one of the best. We had glorious weather, a great party of five and the snowdon horeshoe route over Crib Goch. Brilliant dry warm rock.



After a couple of pints in the summit cafe we descended over Y Llewllyn to the tarns, with just enough time to take a dip. Brilliant.

munroitisRoute Climbed: From Llanberis Date Climbed: 3rd October 1993  Sucess!

munroitis

Since 1993 I have climbed this cracking hill many times. That being said the first occasion will stick in my memory. Not only was I new to hill walking, but my wife and few others who didn't venture onto the hills also came with us. After following the steam railway half way up we stopped at the hut for a welcome cuppa, then set off into the cloud towards the summit. Then out of the clag I could hear it. A one hundred year old steam engine came chugging up the 1 in 6 gradient. I'd never seen anything like it. The cloud covered summit reached and after a couple of pints in the summit cafe I said goodbye to my wife and her friends as they caught the train back down. How glad I was that I could take my time and amble back down in peace and quiet.



A brilliant day.

Took the Llanberis path up on my first attempt of Snowdon whilst it was covered in snow. I was amazed to have the summit marker all to myself! Weather forecast reported a temp of -3 with the windchill bringing it down to -15. It was the best day I have ever had on Snowdon. It's much better on the summit without the summer crowds!
