Snowdon Earlybird – 2019

Friday 17th May, 2019

Snowdon Earlybird

Over the years we’ve met a lot of people who confess they’ve never walked up Snowdon – but really want to!  Well, here’s your opportunity, in the company of a couple of Snowdon Volunteer Wardens who know pretty much everything there is to know about the mountain.  We’ll be leaving fairly early, ascending via the Pyg Track so that we get to the summit before it gets too busy, then our descent will be via the Miners’ Track.

Our minibus will take us to Pen-y-Pass, and bring us back afterwards.

(Note that whilst we are anticipating that the summit cafe and toilets will be open, if there are high winds trains will not run to the summit, so the building will not be open.)

Remember that it can be cold at altitude, even in May.  And wet too. Full water/windproofs, plenty of warm clothing, and good mountain boots (preferably with ankle suport and good tread) are essential.

Duration: All Day.  Please bring a packed lunch and plenty to drink.

Distance: 8 miles / 13 km

Grade: Strenuous high mountain

Suitability:    Fit, experienced walkers. You must be ready for well over 2 hours of continual ascent. This is no walk in the park (well, strictly speaking it is, of course!)

Meet: 8.00 a.m. at Trefriw Village Hall (LL27 0JH, SH781631)
or, if the Village Hall repairs are not completed in time, at Peniel Chapel, LL27 0JL, just a minute’s walk up the road opposite the hall.

Walk Leaders: Linda Roberts (Snowdon Volunteer Warden) and Tony Ellis (Volunteer Warden and Snowdon author)
