Parked in the Nant Peris P&R car park (£2.50 for 4 hours) & used the shuttle service up to Pen-y-pass provided by CK Cabs (Very reasonable rates) – Pyg track up to Bwlch y Moch & then good path up to summit rock. Final England & Wales Simm, 41 years after the first. (PM)gerrybowes11/04/2017

Summit no. 1 on another epic from Pen Y Gwyrd hotel to Llanberis via Crib Goch and Snowdon.Had my customary Cappuccino at the cafe at the Pen Y Pass before heading off on the Pyg track but I climbed from there up a gully to access the Craig Fach ridge and from there easily located the summit with its lovely red tinged sloping rock. Beautiful views across the Pen-y-pass. I continued on the track leading back onto the Pyg track at the intersection with the Crib Goch path.Dazingdale08/07/2014
