I can now check Snowdon off the list of mountains climbed!
A very grey, cloudy and chilly Saturday saw a fairly tough plod up the Llanberis path to the summit of Snowdon. I’ve been told that the views along this route are really quite something…I cannot verify this though as right from the start we were walking up into the clouds with visibility not offering anything more than a few tens’ of metres in any direction!
Despite the rubbish visibility and the occasional rain shower it was an enjoyable walk mostyl thanks to the company along the way – Sarah, Margaret (who I climb Kilimanjaro with in August), Lee (Margarets son), Fiona and Dali (Lees friends). Without the banter from this lot I can imagine the walk being a lot tougher!
All in all, a great days training for August – I’m happy enough that I managed the 1000m climb without too much effort and without suffering any aches or pains. That said I have been attacked by a mosquito (maybe more than one) and can count 16 bites on my legs…that’ll learn me for wearing shorts!
Here are a few photos from the day; apologies as many look the same but I promise they are from different view points along the way!
