The most recent come from the spring of 2022 when I introduced my brother, niece and nephew to the Crib Goch ascent of Snowdon. They loved it. Having parked just outside Llanberis, we took the shuttle bus back up to Pen-y-Pass, and from there made our ascent. Setting out early we managed to avoid the crowds, and indeed had we hiked the route a day a later, would have been amongst the queues reported in the national newspapers.
By the time we reached Garnedd Ugain it had clouded over a little, and it remained much the same until we departed Snowdon / Yr Wyddfa's summit, heading south then west along the Watkins Path until reaching the Cribau Spur. Here we scrambled down to Glaslyn and joined the Miners' Track for our return to Pen--y-Pass.
Before 2022, I had not been on the mountain since the spring of 2015. On that occasion I hiked the Rhyd-Ddu Path with my kids taking the panoramas with my iPhone on the descent of Snowdon having first climbed the summit from Pen-y-Pass via the Pyg Track. That had been another great day, full of achievements and memories that will last a lifetime.
The Crib Goch and Crib y Ddysg photos were taken with a Canon SureShot.
The first tour photos were taken from the Pyg Track in January 2008.
