The Big Day Out: Hard Hiking On Snowdon Range
Snowdon, North Wales
Approx. 11 hours
A good, full day of hiking and scrambling and ridges for people who want to push themselves a bit harder.
What To Expect
If you and some friends would like to climb Snowdon via some of the harder tracks (for example, Crib Goch, Gribin or Lliwedd's edge) without having to worry about the planning and navigation, and you'd like to have an expert lead the way and make sure that you stay safe, then this is the adventure for you.
Based on what you'd like to achieve and on your fitness levels I'll design a route which gets you up on the ridges and away from the crowds. If everything goes to plan then at the end of the day you'll be back at the bottom knackered and buzzing from the climbs.
Routes will be flexible and can be changed or adapted based on the weather so you can rest assured that whatever the conditions, we'll choose the most sensible options.
How Long Will We Be Out For?
We will aim to have an early start (09:00 would be ideal) and be out for around 8-10 hours, depending on the route, weather, amount of light and people's fitness levels.
How Fit Do I Need To Be?
This package involves a fair amount of scrambling. The scrambling will be slow and steady but you'll need a reasonable level of fitness in order to make the most of the day. Previous scrambling experience is advised but not essential as routes will be designed around your abilities. There will be plenty of breaks for people to rest and refuel.
