Parked on A4086, just east of the county boundary. Walked back along the road and up the permissive path to Pen y Pass. Took the PYG track to Bwlch y Moch, then followed the fence up to Craig Fach. Back to and along the PYG track up to the top of the zig zags, then right to Crib y Ddysgl, then back along the corrie rim to Snowdon. Very busy on top, with an hour's queue for the pillar. Above 800m, it was quite snowy, with those only equipped with trainers doing much sliding! From the summit headed down the steep Watkin path, which thankfully was fairly snow free. Along the west ridge of the horseshoe, visiting Y Lliwedd (W+E peaks) and Lliwedd Bach. Then down to the Miner's Track, with a quick diversion to bag Clogwyn Pen Llechen. On reaching Pen y Pass went up and over Moel Berfedd, dropping down to the A4086. 19km in total with 1400m ascent, taking me 9 hours.silverwolf_alan15/04/2023

Snowdon horseshoe. Amazing day in perfect weatherBarns15009/07/2022
Paked at Nant Peris park and ride for £5 where there is toilets and caught the sherpa bus £3 to Pen y pass. Intended to walk the full Snowdon horseshoe but it was too windy for Crib Goch, so climbed via the Miners track to the 998 point and turned right for a quick ascent of Crib y Ddysgl, continuing on from here to snowdon and around to Y Lliwedd, Lliwedd east top, Lliwedd Bach and Gallt y Wenallt, caution should be taken on descending off snowdon to the south as its very loose. Ten and half mile in Seven and half hours.WAYNE ROWLETT25/06/2022
