We meet mid morning to begin hiking up Snowdon. Depending where you're coming from, you may wish to travel there that morning or book somewhere locally to stay the night before. The first day's hike includes an exciting scramble across the ridge of Crib Goch and finishes with a descent into the town of Llanberis, where we spend the night. We love camping, but use bunkhouse/budget hotel type accommodation for this event at the end of long walking days to save the effort of setting up tents and to provide somewhere warm and dry in the event of bad weather.

We only regret the opportunities we didn't take...
Behold the sweeping valleys
Where the heathered slopes do lie,
With rugged peaks that reach
Unto the ever-changing sky,
Where Snowdon stands before me now
As clouds begin to break,
Llanberis still the morning light
Now rests upon the lake.
