Great trail , even whilst it rained hard for most of it , the views outweigh the conditions ! Only thing I would suggest is that the crib goch route is easy to miss if your a newbie ie there wasn’t a huge sign saying THIS WAY !! However it’s not an easy route and I’m guessing there’s no sign to stop novices heading up a tricky climb !! Shame cafe on snowdon was closed , place looked a bit run down and Also full of people ! If U want a quiet walk I suggest some of the surrounding peaks ! Certainly recommend but definitely not in winter !

My first scramble walk ever and I must admit it is very demamding but so rewarding. I wouldn't consider myself very fit but riding a bike to work every day helps with keeping fit - climbing up the route is very tiring and you can catch a breath walking through the edge - but it is not for those with a fear of hights. The views are breathtaking but one mistake can cost you a life. Weather is very important for beginners but if you're advanced you can make it when it's windy or wet - but I would avoid. Very important thing is timing - don't start too late as you may end up on the top of the Snowdon with only darkness around you. I'll definitely be back.

Not a walk for beginners or the faint hearted! Great walk nonetheless with plenty of scrambling with great views of Snowdon and surrounding snowdonia once you reach the top of crib goch. Would err on the side of caution however as it is extremely exposed at the top with a very narrow right tee to walk along - I suggest dropping down a little on the left hand side and walking along there rather than the ridge itself. There are also some paths to rock climb up if you fancy the challenge.

Take your time if it’s wet and low visibility as rocks can be slippy but plenty of grab points and footholds

Definitely not a walk; it's a climb even before you reach the ridge itself there are several short walls to surmount. Absolutely tremendous scramble along knife edge and over pinnacles. Sheer drops on either side particularly north.
