There are days I get up in the morning and think ‘mmmm! Why don’t I just get in the car and go climb/hike’. This is where I am very lucky indeed. Within 2 hours I can be in the Lake District or the Yorkshire dales and also over to the West I can cross into Wales and wander up and down in Snowdonia.
The highest summit in Wales is Mt Snowdon. In fact I have been there so much lately I am forcing myself to stay away until the winter to ensure I do not lose the enthusiasm for it. A true, good training mountain.
I hope to show you some of the beauty of this mountain with this short video of pics I have taken over the past couple of years.
There is a path up from any side for many abilities, although the ‘Tourist (LLanberis)’ path is slightly less grand and busy for me it is a great way for first timers to enjoy the Mountain.
I like to pick times I know it is not going to be busy and go up another route. Over the past couple of years I have been over a dozen times, in every weather condition. In fact after a heavy snowfall it was the perfect climb to test my ice-axe and crampon skills ready for Mt Aconcagua.
It has also been an absolute pleasure to have been joined on many of these walks by friends new and old.
If you fancy a days stroll up a mountain go for it, you won’t be dissapointed. Be safe!
