Snowdon

Today was a 16 hour round trip leaving at 5am and not returning till 9pm.  We decided we were doing snowdonia as part of the three peak challenge. Starting at the bottom which is around 200ft above sea level we took 3.5 hours to climb to over 3550 ft at the summit. It was about 10c at the top and had to wrung dry my t shirt and head scarf that was soaked through with 2 litres of water I had been drinking all the way up.



And here is the trig point at the top


The down wards deccent was a killer taking about two hours but once at the bottom we visited the waterfall and a webcam cache.



Llanberris also had some great views including a castle and lots of sheep.



What a day certainly one to remember.
