Crib Goch from Mountain Escapes @ Pen-y-Pass Car Park

Crib Goch from Mountain EscapesCrib Goch

Some say that this is one of the finest ridge walks that the UK has to offer.

Join us for a day that you will not forget in a hurry.

The exposure, the height, the wind and most of the time the rain.

This is an epic grade 1 scramble that is technically quite easy, it just the exposure that gets to most people.

We will start from Pen Y Pass till we get to the bottom of the east ridge of Crib Goch (a grade 1 scramble in itself). Then we traverse the famous ridge. Once complete we head on over Garnedd Ugain and Crib-y-Ddysgl (2nd highest mountain in Wales) where to, we will have to scramble up the ridge.

Then its off up to Snowdon.

This is not for the feint hearted. The exposure and height have caught many people out. It is often mistaken for Snowdon itself as it is the peak that is visible from Pen y Pass car park.

Take on this classic under the safety and experience of the Mountain Leaders.

Guide ratio 1 to 6

Snowdon Horseshoe from Mountain Escapes

Snowdon HorseshoeAs soon as you catch sight of the Snowdon there can be no doubt about its status as the highest peak in Wales. Majestic and refined, the impressive proportions of its pyramidal lines are instantly recognisable. Often described as having 5 ridges and 5 cwms in a star like symmetry, this description is apt – but only tells half the story.

The ridges have numerous spurs and crags, while the corries are twisted and multi-levelled. The Snowdon horseshoe covers an area greater than that of the Glyders, and almost the size of the entire Carneddau range.Snowdon’s crags and ridges are intertwined with the history of Welsh mountaineering. From the early days of climbing on Y Lliwedd’s north face to the modern routes on Clogwyn Du’r Arddu, and from the highway like Llanberis Path to the secretive scramble of the Clogwyn y Person Arete, it is a mountain that provides adventure for all who step onto it. But one route above all others tops every wish list – and that’s the Snowdon Horseshoe.

Have you done any scrambling? Want to go just that little bit further? This is the walk for you. Take on the mighty Crib Goch and the Snowdon Horseshoe. Probably the finest ridge walk that the UK has to offer. Please only come if you are not afraid of heights and exposure, this is not for the feint hearted. Crib Goch is a knife edged ridge with long drops to either side.

Guide ratio of 1 to 6.

Snowdon Sunrise Summer Solstice from Mountain EscapesSummer Solstice

Put This Date in Your Diary, don’t miss out.

Why not join us to watch the sunrise from the highest peak in Wales, on the longest day of the year. We will be leaving Snowdon Mountain railway in Llanberis to walk up to the summit of Snowdon. The sunrise will be about 4.52am. The ascent should be about 4 hours at a slow rate. At the Summit we will make ourselves comfy to watch the sunrise with hot chocolate, cake and a little tipple, if you are old enough 😉

There are limited places and the price is £35 pp (plus admin fee)

At 1085m, (3565 feet), Snowdon is the highest peak in Wales (and England). Surrounded by myths and legends and the supposed resting place of King Arthur. Experience one of the most amazing views, at one of the most iconic times of the year.

You will be taken up by Mountain Leaders who have a wealth of knowledge and know the mountain well. All our guides are fully insured and qualified first aiders.

Put this on your bucket list.
