About The Event
Short Walk description:
Join us on our sunrise walk up Snowdon, at 1,085m the highest peak in Wales!
Gathering at the Llanberis Pay and Display car park in the dark, we will do a final kit check to ensure everyone has enough warm layers, food and water, before beginning our climb up Snowdon via the Llanberis Path. This route is the longest and most gradual of the six main paths to the summit of Snowdon, and offers fantastic views of Cwm Brwynog, Llanberis and over the Menai straits towards Anglesey (on the way up it will be dark... so more likely the views will be visible during our descent!)
The path mainly follows the Snowdon Mountain Railway track, and goes by Hebron, Halfway and Clogwyn stations. Before the railway was opened in 1896, visitors employed guides to lead them to the summit along this path on mule-back. A remarkable geological feature can be seen from the Llanberis path, the Clogwyn Du’r Arddu syncline. The syncline was formed over thousands of years, as the earth moved and transformed horizontal deposits into vertical layers of rock.
We will reach the summit for sunrise, which no doubt will be an incredible and awe-inspiring moment, should the weather be on our side. Then we will begin our descent off the mountain via the same route.
As with all WILD events, this walk needs a minimum of 5 bookings to take place.
