Snowdon August 2021
We made it!
This trip to Snowdon has been on the cards for a while but for lots of reasons had been delayed and delayed.
As we approached the weekend the weather forecast was not looking favourable. However, we all decided to travel up even with the possbility that we wouldn’t be able to get any climbing/walking done if the conditions were not safe.
In the 24 hours before the walk was due to commence the clouds and forecast cleared somewhat and there was a sensible window of opportunity to get ourselves safely up and down the mountain in one hit. As you can see from the photos below there were some wet moments, especially on the way down! But everyone was dressed appropriately and we got back in time for the bus … sort of!
Overall we had 11 people and one strong dog (George) summit on the Saturday with 8 people getting to the top for the first time. It was in fact George’s first birthday and it was an impressive effort.
It was such a good weekend and I want to thank everyone for commiting to the event and making it worthwhile to organise.
