6 hours top to bottom if you’re fairly fit. Slightly challenging at final ascent, especially in the snow. Strong foot wear required! Take plenty of layers too as the weather changes come thick and fast. Arrive early as limited parking.

We decided to climb the Snowdon Ranger path, described as 'an easy path for all abilities'. You start at the Llyn Cwellyn car park, near the youth hostel, next to a rather stunning lake. Just 10 minutes in I found myself huffing and puffing and...More

Must be my billionth time tabbing up Mt S. I've seen some daft reviews on here and just need to put stuff straight. It's a mountain = it's high up and when stuff is high up it gets colder, windier and closer to the clouds....More
