Once on Snowdon we returned to Llanberis along the Llanberis Parth about 5 miles with a stop at the Halfway House and the Snowdon Café

Weather was excellent hottest day of 2016 for me in North Wales – tough to walk having to consider sun protection, and id I plan enough water to take up the mountain and down

Just past the route to Crib Goch

Paul & Llwyd plan to climb some mountains over one or two days.

Yr Wyddfa (Snowdon) will be one, but we will also climb some of the 15 Mountains over 3000 feet. Some again as we didn’t see them due to the gale force weather on our last ascents March 2015

 

Back in March 2015 our WOW Walk on Wales the weather was not good – had to abort Section 1 and the Tryfan, Glyder Fach and Fawr we could only just see our hands, Gale Force Winds – meant it was a challenge even for my experience in the Mountains of North Wales.

We return to see if we can have better weather so my son can enjoy the magic of both Glyder FAWR and Fach. Perhaps Day 2 we will attempt Crib Goch on the way to Yr Wyddfa (Snowdon)

We will probably also visit Velocity at ZipWord Bethesda – on the site of Penrhyn Quarries
