Not just another picture from the summit of Snowdon but one with a romantic hint of "Sweet Relief". The chap sat at the bottom left of this frame had just moments earlier gone down on one knee and proposed to the young lady sat with him, who thankfully said yes and now sports a diamond engagement ring on her finger. Sadly I have absolutely no idea who they are, but I would really love to be able to give them a copy of this pic and to wish them the very best for their future together. Should by chance any of you AM3er's recognise them then please do let me know.
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.
