Cwellyn Arms Bunkhouse (https://www.google.co.uk/maps/place/Snowdon+Base+Camp/@53.0621481,-4.1597712,13.43z/data=!4m12!1m6!3m5!1s0x0:0x39f42638b177a57f!2sCwellyn+Arms!8m2!3d53.0545774!4d-4.1360641!3m4!1s0x0:0x6359c34a87c900a2!8m2!3d53.0659698!4d-4.1434765)

This well kept secret corner of Snowdon is a hikers paradise, well away from the crowds but well placed to ascend Snowdon from it's quieter side via the Rhyd Ddu path and the South ridge, my personal favourite.

As well as the possibility of ascending Snowdon we are in a great location for a number of other classic Snowdonia hikes, including the Nantlle Ridge, Cnicht (the welsh Matterhorn) Moel Hebog, and the Moel Eilio Ridge.

Itinerary: There will be hikes on offer every day, depending on group size, we will be splitting into small groups which will be led by qualified mountain leaders with first aid qualifications. We will chose the hikes on a day to day basis depending on group fitness and weather conditions.
