Course Description

This is a worthwhile and memorable route as we explore the quieter route to Snowdon. The path from Rhyd Ddu takes us through quarries and affords us a fantastic view of Cwm Llan and Y Lliwedd before we start to ascend the South ridge. Before we summit, the path narrows with steep and breathtaking views of the valleys below. A short steeper section and we reach the summit of Snowdon! Our descent route takes us down the Rhyd Ddu path which is a gradual route back to Rhyd Ddu. This walk is about 8 miles.

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.
