From Snowdon Base Camp  Sucess!

Did this as part of a route, starting and ending at Cwellyn Arms, including Y Lliwedd and Crib Goch via Pen-y-Pass.

Horseshoe  Sucess!

Snowdon - the Pyg Track  Sucess!

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.

miner track  Sucess!

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

Sunny Snowdon!  Sucess!

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!

Rainy 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!

Great climb  Sucess!

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.

Nice day out  Sucess!

Approached via Crib Goch and back down the Pyg track to do some multipitch climbing in the afternoon.

Nice summer trip

Climbed it as a teenager in 1992. Would love to go back, as well as climb in Scotland.

Windy and Crowded  Sucess!

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.

Numerous ascents  Sucess!

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

Up Miners, Down Pyg - Spectacular Views  Sucess!

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.

Great weekend away  Sucess!

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!

iconic !

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.
