Rode Snowdon for the first time today, thanks to some great guiding by Ali Chant. Up the main path from Llanberis and down the Rangers Path with some added extra good bits on the way back. It was grim at the summit with lots of snow and ice.
Cold fingers warmed up on the descent. It was technical on the wet slippery rocks and we both decided that it wasn’t worth taking any silly risks given the weather. Only saw two walkers with a crazy chocolate Labrador in the three and a half hour we were out on the mountain.
One thought on “Snowdon”
Sounds fantastic, my wife and I walked up (think it was called) Pyg track. http://makei.blogspot.com/2006/06/httpphotos1bloggercomblogger7363301520_18.html cold, wet and steep. We headed back the easier way and the whole time I was thinking – ‘this would be fun to mountain bike down’ !!
