Having done most routes up over the years in all seasons including the gulleys of Central Trinity and Parsley Fern, I wanted to do the Welsh 3000s. Ken and I parked at Pen Y Pass and we went up via the PYG track and zig-zags. Descending over Crib Goch I slipped and twisted my ankle. I tried to walk it off down the North ridge into Llanberis but finally had to give in at Blaen Y Nant. Still want to do the 3000s in one tour one day.
Part of the Adventure Peaks Christmas celebration and Everest Expedition Team gathering. Foggy, slippery and no visibility most of the way.
Long wet slog up. Cloud clears on the way down - awesome views!
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.
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.
Since a young lad i have done this summit from different routes 34 times now.
Dont know when will be the next time but i never get fed up with it.
Tourist route, Horseshoe, etc etc, summer, winter. Lovelly mountain
Run up Snowdon in 1999 whilst training for the New York marathon.
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.
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.
Went up while waiting for friends to wake up! Glorious views!
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.
Many times, but most recently on Christmas day 2006 during a wonerful temprature inversion , see my user profile image!
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.
Did all the paths and scrambles in my teens. Managed a few climbs, but never yet been to Cloggy
Really good and clear views all around. The summit was still a bit snowy.
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.
