Mount Snowdon Challenge!
Sat 27th October 2012 (£55 incl transport)

 

If you have not already hiked to the top of the highest point in England & Wales you need to get that one under your belt. If you have already done it, lets face it, its about time you had a really good hike anyway!

We're all busy though eh! ...so for this challenge we will be leaving London early Saturday morning, hiking Snowdon & arriving back home the same evening!!

We'll be meeting outside Waterloo tube station at 6:15am on Saturday 27th October and aim to get back to London by around 11pm.




 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

---------------------------------------------------------------

Payment includes transport from Waterloo to Snowdon & back + guided hike up Snowdon.

---------------------------------------------------------------

We've done this for the last 3 years & it worked out brilliantly. Everyone had a great time, felt happy to have climbed Snowdon that weekend & still had Sunday to relax fully & enjoy!

-------------------------------------------

This trip caters for those for who acheiving/enjoying 'Snowdon' is the all important thing and would sacrifice a bit more time spent travelling and tiredness on that one day for smaller costs & having an extra full day at home on the weekend!

It is mainly straightforward hiking but there are a few sections where you will need to scramble a bit. It's fine for most people but not really suitable for anyone who is unfit or suffers with strong vertigo.

* Our intended routes are to go up the Pyg trackdown the Miners track (though unlikely, these could be subject to change ;-))

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Recommended to bring:

*Water (+Hot flask would be good if the weather is cold?)
*Waterproof/windproof jacket/trousers are essential
*Appropriate clothing but at least a fleece as it is likely very cold near the summit!
*Hiking Boots are essential
* Manageable backpack for your things
*Money for food & drink (Great Cafe at the top of the mountain with hot/cold food/drinks - NO guarantee this will be open!)
*Bringing snacks and lunch is recommended as the cafe at the top is sometimes closed or too busy)
*A smile and general good vibe 
A decision on somewhere to eat after the hike will be made upon arriving back at the transport, depending on the time!

    Hi Wolf,

    The minibus will wait for us near Snowdon, right? Can I take some extra food/spare clothes and leave it in the bus for the duration of the hike, or I have to carry everything with me to the summit?

    • Wolf

      Hi Marta, Yes for sure. The minibus will be parked probably at the foot of the mountain if space allows, otherwise 10 mins down the road. So there will not be access to the minibus will only be when i arrive back down the mountain but you can leave whatever you like in there! :) ....... one thing... with a full minibus there is no extra room to store anything you bring 'during the journeys' except under your seat and with you holding it!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
