About the event:
Snowdonia boasts and amazing array of landscapes and geology in a relatively small area. Rising out of the sea it can be seen from the relatively flat island of Anglesey as a dark brooding barrier to the mainland. The pictures below give an idea of the diversity of mountain landscape in the small area and if the weather is good we should be able to see most of it!
Snowdon itself is the highest mountain in Wales at 1,085m (3,560ft). There are a number of super famous routes up to the summit - from straight forward plods such as the Llanberis path through to some quite challenging routes. There is also the famous Khyber Pass (or at least where the Carry on up the Khyber was filmed)!
The weather and group aims will dictate which route we tackle on a particular day and we won't know this until a day or so beforehand. We may even have the option to go up one trail and down a different one if we are strategic and leave a car at one end for us to return to.
Whichever route we take it won't be the Llanberis track. We've all seen the pictures of queues and we don't want to add to this congestion. We'll likely be taking a mix of the Rhyd-Ddu path and Watkins Path.

I'll send an email around to confirm the meeting location before the day depending on what the weather is doing and therefore which route we'll be taking. There will be a quick coffee, a kit check and we'll be off.
All of the routes we'd be tackling are relatively straight forward in good conditions. However, this is a mountain and conditions at the summit can be vastly different from those down at town level. Some paths are steep in sections and rough (even the Llanberis path has it's moments). So some hill fitness will be needed.
The day costs £59 if booking for one with discounts if booking for more people.
16-18 year old's are welcome if accompanied by a parent or guardian.
