My first time round the Snowdon Horseshoe, definately now one of my favourite walks. Great fun scrambling and getting the fear factor from the exposure on the knife edge. Combined with a bit of soloing, superb.

petestewartRoute Climbed: Llanberis path (it was all I had time to do!) Date Climbed: 29 august 2005  Sucess!
Did the easy route just to get the summit in the bag before heading home. It was raining quite heavily when we started with low visibility but about 10 minutes from the summit, the cloud/fog cleared and we were confronted with the wonderful views. Very enjoyable day, but very strange to walk into a cafe once at the top!

We did a multi pitch rock route next to snowdon, then bagged the summit afterwards. On route was some of the loosest rock ever and no gear placements. Oh well, lived to tell the tale!

I climbed up the crib goch route. Was going to do the horseshoe, but due to poor light and bad conditions, decided would be safer to come down the pyg track. Crappy enough day. V. little visibility, rain and mist/fog were a constant companion. Crib Goch arete is very enjoyable though.

One of the mountains I learned my love of mountains from. I generally go back every two or three years now and try out a different route to the summit each time (planning to do the horseshoe this year). Highly recommend the Pyg Track if you want to convert anyone to mountain hiking.

WhereAmI

My first peak that I have on my official peak log. I climbed it on my random exploration of the British Isles. My travel mate didn't make it to the top so I quickly grabbed her a granola bar from the top and came back down to her. The top was windy enough where I was grasping to the top pedestal for dear life as I took a picture of myself as the highest man in england and wales. Wonderful experience for a first peak.

Great mountain as long as you dont go near the summit!!If you want to do Crib Goch,start half way down the Llanberis pass,walk toward Dinas Cromlech and head up to Clogwyn Y person,grade 3 scramble up to the crib ridge,you come out in the saddle,turn left over the pinnacles and the Crib and back down the North Ridge,thats a great day out!

markradfordRoute Climbed: PYG track then Miners Track Home Date Climbed: 17 Jan 2004  Sucess!

markradford

Blue Sky in North Wales (Rare), Snow and Ice (Rarer these days), No wind (very rare), altogether (once in a life time!!)



The new dusting of snow on the route made an interesting and exciting day . The PYG track was busy with plenty of snow from 500m up. Great views of the entire Trinity face and Glaslyn cwm. The zigs zags are much safer these days with some path works near the summit. No cornice breaking out on to the summit ridge. Faily sedate descent through snow but with great sceanry.



Great winter day out in Wales!!

Hiked in misty weather in early September 2001. I didn't know that a train went to the summit until the fog cleared!

2nd summit; 1st was at the end of summer in 2002; now went up in winter. The 1st part of the Snowdon Horse Shoe to the summit via Crib Goch. Felt like punishing ourselves after an overindulgent Christmas day.....Took us best part of 4 hours to the summit in gale winds, blizard conditions, hale and continious rain. Zero visibility with a map that resembled toilet paper after 1 hour. Thank God for a compass. I really enjoyed the ridge and would love to repeat on a clear winter's day (do these exist in Snowdonia?) after some snow-fall. Took the direct route down as there was not enough daylight hours (and madness) left to complete the 2nd half of the Snowdon Horse Shoe.

My 4th trip up Snowdon, this time finally got to enjoy the delights of Crib Goch. Had lovely weather for it (even a little too hot), which might explain why Pen y Pass car park was already almost full when we got there at 8.45am - we were lucky to get one of the last spaces.

This is the first time I've been up here while the train is running - shame about the crowds, but being able to eat a sausage roll in the cafe made up for that!

All in all, a very enjoyable day out.

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."

Andy KennedyRoute Climbed: Miners track (Ascent) + Pyg track (descent) Date Climbed: 22nd April 2003  Sucess!

Andy Kennedy

On a quick dash from Liverpool on a sunny day i dragged my sister and two friends up Snowdon for the first time. I think they enjoyed it but they never actually told me so! Whilst they took the train back to Llanberis i descended the Pyg track alone reaching the car in about an hour from the summit at the cost of my aching knees! Nice easy hike but i felt it was somewhat spoiled by the volume of people at the summit brought up by the train. It takes the sense of acheivement away when you see "johnny tourist" sitting there with his mother in law, wearing sandals and munching on there not even remotely squashed sandwiches - how can they deserve such a fine view without the pain?!! Or am i jusy a cynic?

Attic Tony

One of my favourite mountains, always a pleasure to get up here, especially when the train's not running (although the downside to that is the cafe's closed).



Plan to do Crib Goch next time.
