Course Description

The PYG track allows us to get near to the heart of Snowdon. Starting from the Pen y Pass car park we meander our way, gently rising to the foot of the steeper zig zags. section. Along the way we will encounter short sections of rock where we use both our hands and feet to progress.From the zig zags to the higher areas of Snowdon, the path can become quite narrow but soon we join the main path leading to the summit of Snowdon! To return, we retrace our steps but with a different perspective as we get to see the fantastic geology of Snowdon at it's best. A walk of about 7 miles.

Please note: The walk on the 29 January 2018 will be classed as a Winter walk and additional clothing and equipment may be required. Please contact us for advice or to discuss before booking if you are unsure.

Note: All our instructors are experienced, fully qualified for the course they are responsible for and are qualified first aiders. They will always strive to give you the best experience coupled with ensuring your safety and others.
