Trip Report Climbing Snowdon

Jump to last reply

Given that some quarter million make the trek annually (and even more by train), it's not like climbing Snowdon is scaling Everest. That said, I still felt it a worthy goal and accomplishment and was something I wanted to try while here.

With a little planning, reasonable weather and moderate fitness, so can you.

We made a day of it yesterday. We drove to Caernarfon on Friday night (M6, ugh) and scored a deal at the Premier Inn (£39 pre-paid) and then headed up on Saturday. I walked up with my DD14 and we were eventually joined at the top by DW and DS11 who took the train. We walked down together.

[I think the two of us that walked up enjoyed it more -- the views at the top were a little clouded over compared to what we saw on the ascent.]

Topped off with a nice dinner in Conwy at our favorite restaurant (Watson's Bistro), it was a nice (early) Father's day "present".

Photos and more on my blog:

Though I enjoyed the day immensely and felt a small sense of accomplishment, I wouldn't put it in my best walk/hike in the UK category (too crowde for that!). However, if you find yourself in the area and are up for the challenge -- go for it.
