The snowdon horse shoe via crib coch

  • This location is shown only to members

  • A few people have shown an interest in doing this, I know Its a long way off but time has run out this year.
    It's a strenuous and exposed day out in the hill so it's not one for the faint hearted, A good level of fitness will be needed.
    As the pen y pass car park gets really busy and is quite expensive i suggest we park in Llanberis or Nant peris and get the shuttle bus up to Pen-y-pass.
    Starting from the car park we follow the pyg track until we reach Bwlch Moch and then we take a right to crib goch. There will be a bit of a scramble up to the top of crib goch. where we will carefully make are way over the ridge. A short descent then leads to bwlch coch. then An easy stroll around the lip of the cwm brings you to Bwlch Glas, where the railway, the Llanberis Path, the Snowdon Ranger Path and the Pyg Track all converge. We can stop at the top for refreshments/ rest Then we will continue down the Watkins track for a while until we approach Llanwedd bach were another bit of scrambling is required to reach the top, Then we will proceed to descend until we reach Llyn Llydnaw. From the lake we will join the miners track to continue back to the car park, Where we will look back and marvel at our achievement.
    Time wise can be anything from 6-9 hours depending how fast we crawl.
    Hopefully we will get some fine weather and great views!
    Here's a video of the route. please take a look as it will give you a good idea of what to expect

    <a href="https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=874007736027727"></a> Can everyone make sure they have the essentials from the following kit waterproofs, thermal layers, a good pair of boots, food, water, sense of humour, energy...etc
    (Hopefully sun cream will be required!
    May I stress this is not for the faint hearted, Hands as well as feet will be needed..... Although it is amazeballs.
    As I said its weather dependent so could be postponed cancelled last minute.
