This bank holiday weekend Han and I headed over to North Wales and climbed Mt. Snowdon. This is the first time we’ve got out to do something like this since my knee op….
Unfortunately, the weather wasn’t great on the ascent. This meant that photo opportunities were few and far between. However, at the top and on the way down things cleared up. We managed to get a few cool shots of Snowdon which are below.
The walk took 2 hours 20 minutes on the ascent and 1 hour 20 minutes on the descent. I hope you enjoy the photo diary and would love to hear your experiences if you have ever ventured up…
We took the Rhyd-Ddu route up Snowdon which starts flat but has some steep increments. A fun but challenging route near the top.
Whilst the weather wasn’t great it was still warm. There was also very little wind factor which turned the way up into a good workout.
Up at the top the skies cleared and we were above the clouds. This turned out to be a beautiful summit and something I’ve never seen before.
A misty ascent made for quite an eerie atmosphere. At times visibility was limited to around 10 meters in front of us.
The Rhyd-Ddu route has some of the most scenic routes up Snowdon provided the weather is clear. All in all the walk took 3 hours 20 minutes – with a lunch stop at the summit on top of this.
