Completing the Snowdon Horseshoe

Tuesday 17th July 2018

Having overcome the intimidation of Crib Goch, we would now have to brave the likely hoard of “tourists” huddled around the trig point and this mountain’s other… Attractions.

Snowdon via. Crib Goch

Tuesday 17th July 2018

Forty-eight hours earlier, we’d conquered Tryfan and the Glyderau. A day of scrambling and hiking across less-familiar terrain. It’s almost as if that was in preparation for our final adventure in North Wales.

I’ve decided to save the Glyders for a separate post, where this will focus on the challenge of Tryfan.

A Summary: Five Days in North Wales (July 2018)

Between Friday the 13th and Wednesday the 18th of July, I was in North Wales (an hour’s drive east of Snowdon) with three friends. If you follow me across social media, you may have already seen some of the photos from our adventures. With mountains on our mind, we had ambitious plans for our time.
