Snowdon

Friday 11th July
We left our home in Bungay, on the Norfolk/Suffolk border around 1800hrs and began the long drive across the width of the UK to the base of Snowdon.



We arrived at Pen-Y-Pass car park at the base of Snowdon at approximately 0130hrs and slept in the vans until we were awoken at 0500hrs by some early morning climbers.

Saturday 12th July
We got up ourselves and after some quick breakfast we headed up the first of our Peaks - Snowdon.

We started our climb at 0600hrs, taking the 'Miners Track' route to the summit.



The weather was good, the sun was out and the skies were clear. The route has a very slow and gradual climb until you get to the last section, where it turns much steeper. However, the path is clearer marked on the way up and it was quite an enjoyable climb.

We reached the summit at approximately 0900hrs where we had a short rest and soaked up the spectacular views.







After we had the ceremonial 'placing of the rock' which we would be doing on all 3 Peaks, we began our climb down again, this time taking the 'PYG Track' route.



We completed the climb down at approximately 1100hrs and jumped straight into the vans and headed off to the Lake District.
