Preface

The original name of this page was Mountains in Snowdonia above 2,000ft, however in a recent update its remit has been expanded to include all mountains and hills that are members of one of the United Kingdom's classification lists, including those which do not reach 2,000ft in altitude. In addition it has also been expanded to encompass all summits in the Snowdonia area, rather than just those that fall within the Snowdonia National Park Boundary. As a result the name of the page has simply been changed to The Mountains of Snowdonia.

Introduction

Obviously, for us here on SummitPost, the mountains themselves are the most important aspect of the Snowdonia National Park. The area is home to many famous and iconic British peaks including such attractions as Snowdon, Tryfan and Cadair Idris, which have been the playground of many great climbers including O.G. Jones, George Mallory, Edmund Hillary, Don Whillans and Joe Brown to name but a few. This table takes a pragmatic view towards listing Snowdonia's peaks by not only including those that fall within the park boundary, but also those which fall just outside. Okay a quick explanation about what qualities made these summits eligible to be in list - to put it simply they must qualify to be on at least one of the UK’s official mountain lists; any of them. Now I’m sure some of SummitPost’s international members, and probably a good number of British ones, will be scratching their heads and wondering what the hell some of these lists mean (Buxton & Lewis anyone!?!). Well I’m not going to tell you, there just isn’t room here to explain them all fully, however if you are wondering here are some links to some relevant pages, several of which are already here on SP – Hewitt, Nuttall, Marilyn, Buxton & Lewis and Dewey.

How to use this table:

At the moment this is pretty simple, all you have to do is look at it. The key below explains what the different headings mean.
