been up snowdon 20 times or so now and its a wonder everytime, please show this beautiful place the respect it deserves or it will bite you back, too many ill equipped people on the mountain, be safe or you may not get the oppertunity to return, it happens far too many times a year, and bear in mind that the teams that recover you are volunteers, please make sure you donate to the mountain rescue teams whilst in the area, you never know, you may be the next person they carry off the hills.

Just returned home (Texas, USA) after the best holiday of our lives, my wife now wants to move to Wales! Snowdonia was awesome! We also loved the castles in your country especially Rhuddlan,Gwrych and Pulyn-y-Aleg castles. Will keep visiting your site till we can come back to your wonderful country!

Have been to the summit of Yr Wyddfa today after finding your site earlier in the week. The interactive map is a great way to decide which route to tackle (that and an OS map, naturally). The photo of the summit on your site was also nice to see - it being cool, windy and very cloudy above about 2500ft today.

Can anyone please confirm whether the John Gardiner who died a few years ago is the same John 'Digger' Gardiner who tought me maths at Peter Symonds School in Winchester? A rock-climbing Geordie biker, with a ginger moustache. A great guy.

Climbed it on bank holiday saturday from llanberis with my wife and 12 year old daughter. It was very hard work but well worth it. The halfway cafe is a great addition adn would recommned it to anyone. Just need Rhyd Ddu to complete the set. This site is great for getting the info you need -and is clearly well updated.

climbed Snowdon for the first time in my 50th year, wonderful experince will definitly go again. Would be good to have post codes now on web site for the sat nav please.
- Monday, August 27, 2007 at 08:28:42 (GMT)
Thanks for the suggestion postcodes now added. You aren't the first to ask we have even had the company delivering the windows for the new summit building asking for the postcode of Snowdon!
Climbed Snowdon with my husband and two sons aged 10 and 8 on 30 July 2007. It was an amazing day. We took a bus from Llanberis where we met a friendly local who suggested we went up the Pyg track from Pen Y Pass. It was so beautiful but quite tricky near the end. The weather at the top was freezing cold and windy, but once we got back back to Llanberis via the Llanberis pass it was warm and sunny.

For those new to Snowdonia and who are lucky enough to have fine weather check out the mighty Carneddau just above the Ogwen valley. As i live in Llandudno my home overlooks Foel Fras the last or first Welsh 3000er and i cannot think of a better introduction than a jaunt in the Carneddau. In fine weather there is no difficulty whatsoever in walking these magnificent hills,remember you have to go to the Highlands of Scotland to search out a higher area of continuous walking above the 3000ft contour but when you are actually walking amongst them in good weather you will be rewarded with magnificent views and easy walking. the only downside to the Carneddau are their sheer size and they are notorious for their misty weather when they should be avoided at all cost. Next time you visit this part of North Wales forget Snowdon but give the Carneddau a go. p.s You can actually see my house from the summit cairn of Carnedd Lewellyn.

Hello all, myself (Karl) and my now fiancee (Sarah) have just returned from our trip to Snowdon. We have never climbed before and we successfully completed the Watkins path walk. Once we reached the sumit, i proposed to Sarah, although she was very tired she happily said "YES". Guess the great mount Snowdon will hold a meaningful place in our hearts.

My name is Michael. I have just returned from mount Snowdon, after climbing the "Crib Goch" ridge walk. Its the second time I have sucessfully completed that path. I am an everyday person, I have walked numerous paths previously, particularly when I was younger with my parents. But still... I am not used to and don't really have the the top equipment available to be able to attempt such a walk as this! Wow! As the website states quite clearly this isn't a path to be taken lightly, you say the weather is a key point and I agree. Both times this was taken into consideration, but the first time I did this walk I had an experienced guide to help me through the experience, and even he got lost because the cloud came down suddenly and just after the ridge part of the climb we veared right of the summit and found ourselves in a particurlarly sticky situation!! We were ok though eventually! That time I completed the complete horseshoe! This walk is the best in the country and I will continue to walk Crib Goch right throughout my life as long as I am possibly able! Great website. ML.

I just climbed snowdon for the first time with my partner the weather was awful most of way but so worth it to get to the top. I will be going back in the summer as I would really like to experience the views I keep hearing about. If you are thinking of doing it, definatley just go and do it this summer it is amazing, addictive and exhilerating.

climbed snowdon last month, started on the llanberis path but ended up doin alot more miles and on the snowdon ranger path, the weather was closing in fast and when we finaly summited there were 40-50 mph winds on top and visibility was about 15-20 feet, but having said that it was great to do it.

I walked up Snowdon on 17th sept 06 with 35 of my colleagues in aid of asda's tickled pink charity. for some it was easy but for others it was a mean feet, but we all reach the summit what an achievment!. what a beautiful part of the world. just a pity about the weather at the top we couldnt see must.

My sister and I took my son 12 and daughter 7 to the top of Snowdon this week. What a challenge? What an achievement? Plenty of food and water on the way. We all thoroughly enjoyed it.

Me(30)and my dad(55) climbed to the summit via the Watkin path in the last week of July. We started the climb at 0615 as to avoid the midday sun. Stopping a couple of times to look around at the breath taking views which are amazing all the way up. The cool waterfalls to the right of the path were very refreshing on the face. The only problem we encounted was the last bit of the climb, more my dad than me as we had not expected it to be as dangerous as it was. We had read up on the walk in the magazine TRAIL but it did not give us warning to how bad it was. We made it up in one piece and caught the train down. We stayed in Beddgelert in a B&;B called Plas Tan y Graig which i would recommend.

Hi.Am I the only one who feels the new cafe building on Snowdon is a total waste of money? surely the existing building(which has an importent history in it's own right)could be restored for far less cost than building the eyesore that is proposed.the money that is being spent on the new building could be far better spent in other areas of the Snowdonia National Park.another case of the park pleasing the visitors but ignoring the locals.

Just to say how much I enjoyed your Web-Site , absolutely beautiful photography. I am on Snowdon 16/10/04 hiking, and this year we have enjoyed Tryfan and Cadir Idris. I lived in Banff in Canada for over a year ( Rockies ) but it is my belief these Welsh Giants are the most stunning scenery to date , they have a mystical quality that always leaves me inspired.
