CRIB GOCH, Sat 1st Jun 2019

 


 4500 feet ascent, 7.5 miles

An excellent turnout of 12 walkers set off at 7am for Peny-Y-Pas hoping for an early start. Eventually we set off at 9.45am. 

After about an hour, Rona and Carol split from the main group and continued the ascent to Snowdon via the Pyg track. The rest of us followed the track up to Crib Goch, the first 3000 peak. The final section up to the peak involved some tricky scrambling, not helped by the increasing wind speeds, mist and light rain. 

The infamous sharp ridge followed and fortunately the weather cleared enough for us to enjoy the views and sharp drops either side. Progress was inevitably slow along this section but we all safely scrambled to the first pinnacle where another tricky scramble was required to get the next section and on to the next peak, Garnedd Ugain, the second 3000 peak. After a short descent, we joined the masses for the final ascent to Snowdon, our third 3000 peak. 

We met Rona and Carol, had lunch and descended via the Watkin path until we started our last ascent to Y LLiwedd. This required a reasonable amount of effort and scrambling if not as demanding as the first sections of the walk. We descended and followed the Miners track back to Pen-Y-Pas. 

This is the most exhilarating walk I have ever done and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone who enjoys scrambling and has a head for heights.
