Snowdon via Crib Goch and Crib y Ddsgl for the first time. Excellent route with cracking views. Clear for Crib Goch but cloud rolled in with rain and wind by the time we got to Snowdon. Descent via Pyg Track and then drove south to do Cadair Idris in the afternoon.MysteriousSue21/07/2019

Peak number 3. firstly, Beth driving from the lakes, me, chris and Nathan passed out straight away to wake up to Beth ans Marcus being the best of friends! (and delerius). Changed over to Chris, who only lasted an hour, and blessed Marcus with the final drive. As predicted, we were unable to park at Pen-Y-Pass, and had to drive back to Nant Peris, park, and get a shuttle. We went up and down the Pyg track, leg very sore now, took a while to get going. The peak being the most technical of the 3 with scrambles and slabs, complicated by the hundreds of people wishing to climb wales' highest mountain. Again, the weather became terrible on top, but we scrambled on and past many. Chirs predictably did a spectacular gollum impression, and once we met the train track, the queues were silly. We decided not to wait in the queue for the top, but instead have a photo under it (but also sneak up to touch the trig, because you gotta touch the trig, before decided to get out of there and head down foByronHaywood06/07/2019

Weekend in Wales with my walking buddies to complete the Three Peaks. Could not believe how busy it was with people. Snowdon was fun to climb and quirky with the train and visitor centre at the top. Descent was difficult on the feet but overall a very pleasant experience.Thomas McIlvaney25/05/2019

8th ascent. Aged P’s 80th birthday outing. Up and down path from Rhyd-ddu. Snow above about 2000 feet and an icy wind from the NE. Nice walk along Bwlch Main. Also with M and X. Bank holiday weekend and so an absolute log jam at the top. Aged P had a couple of falls on the way down and was clearly exhausted but kept going without fuss.Herbert Anchovy04/05/2019

My daddy climbed Snowdon when he was 8 years old so I am proud to announce that I matched his achievement. I am 8 too. We climbed up the Pyg Track and came down the Miners track. It was fun.Mollyb18/04/2019
I am only just 6 and I have climbed all the way up to the summit. We went up the Pyg track and came back down the Miners Track. It took me 4 hours as I only have little legs.Williamr17/04/2019
