From Crib Goch on round of horseshoe. Into the cloud for this and its ridge was unexpected but I was having fun by now. Had forgotten about the train until it hooted through the mist! Met a couple on my descent to join Llanberis path and the hordes.niallp30/09/2016

The Pen-y-Pass car park was “llawn” by 9.15 when I drove past so I parked in Llanberis and caught the bus to Pen-y-Pass and took the Pyg track and then the path up to Crib Goch which rapidly became a scramble. The ridge walk was exhilarating to say the least. This was definitely the hardest I've done (not that I've done them all) and definitely a lot harder than Striding Edge. Although I was on my own, I rapidly caught up the people in front and, since you can't really overtake, we ended up as a group of about 10 people. Crossed the ridge with a combination of walking, sitting and standing on lower ledges. After an easy section, another scramble up Crib y Ddysgl (but I was an expert by now) and then down the grassy slopes to the main Snowdon path, stayed with the railway after Clogwyn Station to Llechog and then back down to the Snowdon path for a rapid descent. Had a well-earned beer in Llanberis.tsharp02/06/2016

1065 - On way to summit of Snowdon. I dropped the lucozade bottle and Nia was unable to catch it, so we just had to watch it fall down the mountain.Rob-Nia27/05/2016
Super extended horseshoe route- it's been ten years since I last did it and I'd forgotten how much fun it is, especially Crib Goch. Route from Pen-y-Pass: Crib goch, Crib y Ddysgl, Yr Wyddfa, Y Lliwedd, Y Liwedd East Top, Lliwedd Bach & Gallt Y Wenallt, then a yomp back across the valley to pick up the Miners' path near the car park. And all on a four hour parking fee...though I was a bit late getting back...Cas-gwent24/05/2016
Snowdon Horseshoe with Chris J and Dave. Parked at Pen y Gwryd hotel and walked to Pen Y Pass. Crib Goch, Ugain, Yr Wyddfa, and Lliwedd. Almost perfect weather (sunny, gentle cool breeze) for this magnificent round.Skip24/05/2016
