Description
Waypoints (0)

Excellent challenging route where a head for heights is a must. Can be very exposed in places with only a knife edge ridge to walk along. Very difficult in bad weather (rain high winds, ice etc) and not advised for beginners but on clear day views are amazing.

Needs good weather to tackle Crib Goch unless you're fully confident in yourself and everyone you're with, but a very exciting challenge.

Crib goch not for the faint hearted or novice climber. Around 7 hours hiking. Definitely the best snowdon route if you can hack it!

Beautiful! Stunning views, nice easy and fun scramble on the ridge, the rest is usual track hiking.

Loved this trail with my fearless 11 year old. At some points I was a little anxious but actually found he was more than capable of even the toughest sections. Having a cloud free summit made convincing him of the full horseshoe easy at the top, as we could see the full route. My best walk to date.

Excellent route. Crib in bad weather is challenging, but we battled on. Shame about the views, but a good excuse to do it again.

I climbed Snowdon with school it a real good challenge but make sure you go at the right time and bring a lot of water because the higher you go the losers the stones are.
