Yr Wyddfa - Snowdon, Llanberis Path (part 2) 2/11

Posted by
Jules (Drayton, United Kingdom) on 24 August 2012 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Another view of Crib Goch and the famous knife's edge arête that links it to the peak of Garnedd Ugain. Both these peaks form part of the physically demanding Snowdon Horseshoe. Llyn Llydaw can also just be seen here.

LLANBERIS PATH

Distance: 9 miles (14½Km) (there & back).
Ascent: 3,199ft (975 metres).
Time: About 6 hours (there & back).
Grade: Hard Mountain Walk.

The Llanberis Path is the longest route to the summit, and has the shallowest gradient. It follows the line of the Snowdon Mountain Railway, and according to "wiki" it is considered the easiest and least interesting route to the summit of Snowdon. (not sure I would agree with the 2nd point)

It is the route used by the annual Snowdon Race, with a record time of less than 40 minutes recorded from the start to the summit.
