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

mountainmanmarkSnowdon once more  Sucess!


Snowdon is one of those mountains you keep coming back to. Having lived in North Wales I have forgotten how many times it must have been, well into double figures, yet it never fails to inspire. Longest route: From Bangor Pier along the old railway. Greatest memory: Coming down late one night after some heavy snow, to have the huge clouds part, the deep black backdrop of space and the moon appear in the midst! Favorite route: Clogwyn Y Person Arete.

Ejnar FjerdingstadBy Snowdon Ranger Route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 26, 1976

Ejnar Fjerdingstad

With our son (10) and daughter (8). A fairly easy hike with one steep part, but we met a group of British soldiers one of whom had slipped and got a gash in his knee, they didn't need help, though.
The weather was quite good, and the scenery lovely. The relatively large height to be climbed (942 m, 3140 ft.) gave it a near Alpine feel as far as the duration goes, but both kids did well.

atavistWelsh beginning  Sucess!


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.

J FoxSnowdon Horseshoe  Sucess!
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.

joe_akeemRoute Climbed: Watkin Path?  Sucess!


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.

Nigel LewisAlways a good day out.  Sucess!

Nigel Lewis

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.

Date Climbed: May 8, 1986


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.

Date Climbed: Feb 18, 2005


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.

James Orr

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