On Sunday, I was leading an activity for my friends at ProAdventure which involved taking a party of 44 school girls to the summit of Snowdon in aid of the ‘Make a Wish’ charity.
Our route for the day would see us make our ascent from the Pen y Pass car park via the Pyg Track to Snowdon’s summit standing at 1085m above sea level. With good weather predicted we made our way to the summit in good spirits in just over three hours with lunch eaten on the way. Unfortunately, the cafe was closed on this occasion so we stayed on the summit just long enough to take in the views, have a quick snack and take summit photograph. Our descent route was the Miners Track to Pen y Pass which we reached in just under three hours.
All in all a great day on the hill and the girls were extremely pleased with their achievement of walking up the highest peak in Wales.
