Snowdon – Here I come!

This time tomorrow (Saturday) I hope to be well on my way up to Snowdon’s summit!

I’m joining a few others, including Sarah and Margaret who I’m climbing Kilimanjaro with, and staying overnight on Friday in a little hotel in Blaenau Ffestiniog about 40 minutes away from Snowdon.

Early Saturday morning we’ll depart to start our hike up the Watkins path and a few hours later we should reach the summit – weather permitting! (Latest Snowdon weather forecast can be found here – Snowdon Weather)

The Llanberis Path

Also known as the Tourist path, the Llanberis path, although not the shortest, is thought of as one of the ‘easiest’ of all the routes up Snowdon as it is the most gradual climb.

  • Length – 9.0 miles / 14.6 km
  • Ascent – 3300 feet / 1000 metres
  • Duration – Approx 5 – 6 hours
