Snowdonia Walker

Guided Walks in the Park

Latest News / Blog 13.04.22: Busy weekend again getting ready for Easter.


Working for Raw again leading a group along side fellow leader Tabitha, they were very lucky with the weather as only a couple

 of days before we failed to reach the summit with Lucy & Hugo due to storm force winds at the top.


First Warden duty day as well on Saturday, after three Snowdon days I was ready for some down time ready for the busy Easter weekend.


Smoe pics of my Raw Adventures day out.

Latest News / Blog 03.04.22: Winter is back on the hills


After a weekend of sun we were treated to a dumping of snow and a bitter East wind for this weekends work with Raw Adventures Maria and her two sons had been to the summit so a nice walk around the mountain proved to be a great and still challenging day for them.

Fantastic!

Latest News / Blog 12.03.22: Siabod in the Wind!


Finally managed to get out and had a great walk with Andy to reach the summit of Siabod. 

Was not sure if we would get to the top with winds of 60+ mph but with good route selection and local knowledge we missed most of it apart from the top,  certainly no cobwebs left now!

April is fast approaching and bookings are strong so I am hoping for some calmer weather!

Latest News / Blog 10.03.22: Calendar Updated


Due to more booking being received I have updated the Calendar, book early to secure your walking event date!


Latest News / Blog 22.02.22: Rain, Wind & Snow!


Dues to the recent horrible weather there has been very limited activity walking the hills so, nothing to  report really.


However,  bookings are coming in for the coming months so it will not be too long before we can get out there again.

Latest News / Blog 23.01.22: Industrial history talk on Snowdon.


Heads up for a Walk/ Talk  (a glimpse into the industrial past of Snowdon and the area) I am delivering for the Snowdonia Society on April 22nd. This will be a walk over the mountain taking the Llanberis Path and returning down the Miners Track. 


Details will be published by the Snowdonia Society shortly.


Latest News / Blog 22.01.22: Maddie, Ellie, Phoebe & Will make it to the summit.


Taking advantage of the vanished snow and ice on the West side of the mountain I was able to take up this great group of youngsters up to the summit of Snowdon. Having tried unsuccessfully due to the snow and ice on the Pyg track  they were very keen to complete their challenge.


A little rime ice over the last 100mtrs (most of which we avoided) gave us that wintry feel without having to use winter equipment etc. 

The weather was great on the day, although forecast as minus 12 with windchill the sun lifted those temps  three or four degrees.

Another fab day out on our fantastic mountain.



Latest News / Blog 29.12.21. Mixed weather for the festive break:


It has been a very mixed bag of weather for us here, lots of rain turning to snow on higher ground but then disappearing as the temperature rises. Myself and Julia (first Sunrise event for her)  went up Snowdon for a "Sunrise" a few days ago and we were not disappointed.   

As it was quite busy at the summit we then headed up Garnedd Ugain to do a little more exploring.


Most of the snow has now gone from the mountain but I am sure it will be back very soon for some winter adventures.


Latest News / Blog 02.12.21: Yr Eifl & the Coastal Path


On the to-do list was those mountains we see in the far distance as we climb Snowdon via the Llanberis Path, known wrongly as "the Rivals" it was actually Yr Eifl that I went up. 

Accompanied on the day by flower & plant specialist Julia Miflin  we started at Trefor taking the stunning Coastal Path before heading across country to get to the summit.


This was my first visit to what was once the largest granite quarry in the world and the remaining buildings are of epic proportions and stand magnificently as a reminder of the past industry, well worth a visit.


Included in the photos below is a Carneddau pony taken on a visit to Crimpiau at the weekend.

Latest News / Blog 27.11.21


Saturday I delivered a workshop "A glimpse into the industrial past of Snowdon" to several Caru Eryri volunteers who had been working hard all over Snowdonia during the season. 

The weather was kind to us as we delved into the fascinating history of this special mountain and we had a great day out.

Latest News / Blog 07.11.21: Finally catching up!

After a nudge from Sue one of my friends and Blog readers I thought I had better update with news etc.  Needless to say it has been pretty manic here in Snowdonia and I have been out and about quite a bit on various walks and adventures, far too many to list of course but I will add a few pics at the bottom as usual.

The season has now finished for me with pre-booked work but I will still be out on the hills keeping the mountain legs active.

We have our end of season Volunteer Wardens quiz and refreshments at Steff's cafe but with lack of parking space most of us will be walking up that steep tarmac road to get there, and back!

I have agreed to put on a special guided walk "A glimpse into the industrial past of Snowdon" for some of the Caru Eryri Volunteers who have been very busy all season all around the National Park. 


My work has been vary varied over the past weeks, freelancing for various companies, mostly on Snowdon as that is where people want to go! I have met lots of interesting and lovely people and been out in varying weathers some resulting in abandoning walks before the summits. Lots of interesting stories now to be told for many years to come including those pesky lunch eating sheep at the summit!


I have now decided not to take on any more night walks or N3Peaks challenges as it plays havoc with my body time clock and at 70 I think I have done my fair share, could always be an exception for the right reason though:)


A few pics below of some of the outings during the past few weeks, some of them are of me getting a wetting whilst out on Warden duty, enjoy and will post again soon, Keith






latest News / Blog 20.09.21


Working for Raw Adventures Climb Snowdon once again I had the pleasure in supporting Ayodele and his family over from Nigeria to celebrate his 53rd birthday on Snowdon. 

A tough challenge for them as they were new to the mountains and our wet, cold and windy weather conditions, we had a fantastic day out though with everybody making it to the summit.

Latest News / Blog: 03.09.21 Mad busy week here on Snowdon!


It has been a very busy week here for me with four Snowdon trips in five days but, what a five days!

Working for Glyn Peris B&B taking John & June up for their first Snowdon trip, a dodgy tummy made June's trip more of an adventure than she signed up for. But all was well and we had a great day out. 

That day was followed by a 2am morning start for a 3 Peaks challenge, busy roads saw a delay of four hours so a bit of a lie in for me. 


Next up was Clare and her two boys for their first Snowdon Adventure, travelling all the way from Watford we were also joined by trainee ML Andy who was consolidating his group management skills. What a fab fun filled day we had, the weather was kind although chilly at the top and I am sure they will all remember their day out.


Last outing saw me working for Raw Adventures Climb Snowdon along with three other MLs supporting Greater Manchester Youth Network who were on a sponsored walk raising money for 42nd Street a charity raising funds for mental heath of young people in Manchester.


This was a really tough walk for this bunch taking the extended route through Maesgwm and onto the Ranger Path eleven and a half miles with nearly 4000' of climb. Everyone did it and we even managed to get back on time for a pre booked dinner at the famous Petes Eats in Llanberis.


Nearly forgot to mention I attended my Mountain First Aid Course 2 day refresher, these are mainly conducted outside on the sides of hills and woods etc to add realism to what we actually do on the hill, the bodies in the photographs are not real and are ready for placement in various scenarios!


I Have one day off now before a weekend supporting volunteers of the Caru Eryri Scheme working on and around the lower flanks of Snowdon. Roll on Christmas!

Latest news / Blog 17.08.21  Birthday  Snowdon Surprise for Jason !


Nephew Jason along with his son Brad was treated to a walk up our big hill as part of his 50th birthday celebrations, this was a surprise  for him right up to the night before when he thought he was going to have a few beers with family who were all stopping at the fabulous Gwydyr hotel in Betws y Coed.


Both being members of the RAF, fitness was never going to be an issue and despite me bashing their ears on the way we still managed to get to the summit in just over two hours. Weather was decent although we lost the views at the top that didn't stop us having a great day on the hill.


Another surprise party waited for him on his return to the hotel where copious amounts of alcohol were downed along with celebration birthday cake! A perfect end to a great weekend.





Latest news / Blog 12.08.21: Bursting at the seams!



Wow there are a lot of people in Snowdonia at the moment even with the poor weather over the past few days the mountains have been really busy and so have I :)

Snowdon, Cader Idris, Aran Fawddwy and other locations have all been visited, Snowdon multiple times in all weathers!


Some photos from the days: Leah at Aran Fawddwy, and day out on Snowdon for Raw Adventures.





Latest news / Blog 26.07.21


Great weather here for the past few days has meant it has been very busy and very hot! Out with the Snowdonia Society with Julia and Jane we picked up far too much rubbish on Snowdon but it seems we have the same problem all over the park, very sad.


i did manage to have a day off at the zoo with grandaughter Emelia who thought it was ace to try on my sun hat, bless her,


More or less all weekends are now fully booked but weekdays are available if you would like to come and walk on our fantastic mountains. Cheers

Latest News & Blog 18.07.21


Well what a couple of weeks for me, lots of walks working mainly for Raw Adventures/Climb Snowdon which gave me the privilege to walk alongside ten year old Toby and his family as he took on his Snowdon challenge. Toby is a four limb paraplegic he has Cerebral Palsy which means he cannot walk unaided.

With the use of a stick or a holding hand he made it to the summit in five and a half hours, such an incredible achievement!!!

On he way down as a special treat the Snowdon Mountain Railway accommodated Toby and his Mum for a trip down in the Guards van, the rest of us had to walk!.

A fantastic end to an emotional incredible day.

02.07.2021: Some photos from my day working for Raw Adventures/Climb Snowdon, Manni and his crew picked the right day as the weather was really good. Although a challenging walk everybody dug in and had a fab day out on the mountain. 


We continue to be very busy with most weekends until the end of August which means of course that the mountain will also be busy, weekdays are far quieter if you are able to come then.

Latest News/Blog

25.06.21: Big space since the last post mainly due to being very busy!  I have managed to get around the park quite a bit and it was nice to get onto Cader Idris for the first of many planned trips this year.

Snowdon of course is still the main target for anyone coming to Snowdonia and I have had plenty of trips up there with them!


This weekend sees me out on Saturday, Sunday & Monday with a couple of Snowdon trips and a day with Caru Eryri supporting a volunteer team on the Watkin Path and around Llyn Gwynant.


As its my 70th next week I have decided to keep away from the mountains at the weekend and will be chilling who knows where?


Couple of Photos from the past weeks:




08.06.21: The nice weather has arrived here along with the crowds!

Plenty of walks etc since my last blog, various trips on Snowdon and the Glyders with some Warden duty as well.


What is very noticeable are the number of people out here in Snowdonia, its staggering and quite frankly I don't think the area can cope. Trying to get food or refreshments always involves a lengthy queue, but we should not complain after the covid mponths!


I have a few available dates for anyone wanting to walk, weekends are very busy and if you can you should try to come on a week day if possible.

19.05.2021: Another wet weekend in Snowdonia.

Saturday, the first work day for Raw Adventures Climb Snowdon turned out to be a soggy wet affair for the five guests I had. The original walk plan was changed to take an hour of ascent off due the to expected rain and possible thunder in the afternoon.

We still had a great day out and the sun came out (as it often does) on the way down.

Out again on the Sunday with the Warden team and yet another helping of Snowdonia's finest wet stuff to finish off the weekend.

06.05.21: The Snow is Back!


Gulshun and Geoff had an unexpected treat of walking in the snow for their first Snowdon adventure but that made the day even more memorable.




First group walk of the year with Natalie, Jamie, Chloe & Daniel. Weather was interesting to say the least but we had a fab day out!

Snow is back, haha

After my last blog titled "we are snow free" now we are not and I was lucky to get out onto the Glyders for a play, reall good day and I am looking forward to a Snowodn outing tomorrow for more of the same.

The snow is like a magnet for people and the mountains have been really busy this weekend, couple of people had to be airlifted off Crib Goch yesterday, not the best place to be in this weather if you are not experienced winter mountaineers! 


Oh I forgot ! I had a nice day out with the Snowdonia Society and the National Trust giving some TLC to newly planted trees on the lower slopes of the  Glyder Fach. Learnt some interesting stuff as well.


Lots of activity in the next few weeks and I am still trying hard to improve my Welsh so its back to school again on Saturday for another day in the classroom, one day is ok but two or three days does make my head hurt :(.


Photos from Tree day and Y Garn in the snow




We are snow free at the moment.

No snow on the big hill at the moment, just a bit windy and wet!

I was out with the Snowdonia Society & National Trust today giving some newly planted trees some TLC, I learnt some stuff and did'nt get wet, bonus.


Last week I managed to get out onto the high Carneddau and this Friday I think it will be trip either to the Glyderau or the big hill, will await to see the weather forecast!


Bookings for the season are coming in nicely so if you fancy coming out with the Snowdonia Walker, book early to reserve your walk date.


Text, Email or call me to have a chat if you need advice on the walks etc and if I am out on the hill I will get back to you when I am back down.

New Venture

Posted on 10 January, 2020 at 7:30 Comments comments (0)

Had a call from Mike Raine to see if I would be interested in co hosting some days on Snowdon for qualified Mountain Leaders, this is a great opportunity for me to work alongside Mike and also be able to impart some of my knowledge to those coming out with us.

The first session Jan 24th sold out in a day and we are now looking at putting another couple on during the season, no pressure!!


 

Oh no! Not Snowdon again…

Join Mike Raine and Keith Hulse for this Nature of Snowdonia Special Snowdon Workshop. Open only to qualified Mountain Leaders. Mike will take you through the nature of the mountain, the geology, the glaciation, plant and birdlife. We’ll talk about the history of farming, mining and tourism on the mountain. Keith will regale you of lessons learnt working as a full time guide and volunteer ranger on Snowdon, Yr Wyddfa.

 

You’ll receive a PDF of all the information shared on the day to help you with future work on the mountain. We’ll meet at Pencaunant Isaf (Snowdon Cafe) A good brew and bacon butty stop with great hospitality). We’ll wander up the Llanberis Path. We’ll gaze over at the complex geological jigsaw of Clogwyn du’r Arddu.

 

This day will set you up with a lifetime of ideas for guiding on Yr Wyddfa, it’ll kick start your fund of stories, improve your knowledge and open your eyes to aspects of the mountain you never knew existed.

 

You’ll need to bring a packed lunch (we won’t linger at the summit café) and be prepared for a full day on the mountain. Our journey will take us up the Llanberis Path, down the Miners Path and we’ll get the bus back to Llanberis from Pen y Pass

 

As this is a new workshop, and we are running it out of season. We will be offering a full refund in the event to of full winter conditions. By full winter conditions we mean ice-axe, crampons and goggles needed. If the top of the PyG track is the only bit of 'winter' we'll return by the Llanberis Path. We're keen to make it happen. We'll run the workshop again in spring, summer and autumn.


Lets hope the weather holds

Keith


Snowdon "too high & steep"

Posted on 6 January, 2020 at 16:05 Comments comments (0)

Well we seem to have hit the Tripadvisor headlines once again with reviews from ill prepared walkers who thought it would be a stroll in the park.

Too many moans to detail here (sample below) but check out trip advisor to have a chuckle:) 


"We decided to do this climb part of a fundraising event ,we spent weeks researching the best route path to take being we were novice climbers ,we spent weeks walking up hills in prep for it ,we watched you tube videos of people doing the chosen path THE RANGER PATH ,and all i can say is DONT DO IT it was the most terrifying experiance of our lifes ,the path is relentless starts straight away going up hill and never lets up ,the higher you go the worse the terrain becomes ,you clamber and i mean clamber over rocks ,steps,jagged rocks etc ,you cant walk more then 20 yards without stopping ,and in our case we started out really sunny and by the time we got a quarter the way up the weather changed ,it lashed it down it hailed and there was wind of around at a guess of 40 mph ,nearly blew us of our feet ,,be warned when i say dont attempt it, we seriously did not think we would get of alive ,we did manage to battle through and get to the top but it took 4.5 hours to get up there ,when your at the top there is at least another 20 mins walk up to the summit .and when u get there there are another 10 steps more up ...having pushed ourselves up there we were physically and mentally exhausted soaked through to the skin and beyond,"


Having read the full report I can only conclude that this group had underestimated the walk and their level of fitness must have been much to be desired!

The Ranger (Cwellyn) Path is the easiest on the mountain and I regulary take families, groups, young and old people up this path. For someone with average fitness it takes about three hours, add half an hour for someone less fit. The group moaning above took four and a half hours!!!


Just waiting for the winds to die down and I will be heading out onto the hills (probably Wednesday), we might even have a bit of snow, apart from that its all quiet here.

Keith

Looking back to sunnier days & Cake! 




End of the year

Posted on 31 December, 2019 at 11:00 Comments comments (0)

Made it! well nearly, just a low key New Years eve celebration with number one son Matthew and family coming to stay for a few days, they wil be joined by number two son Tom and family coming along on New Years day to make it a noisy event with all those ankle biters! Roll on 2021.


I managed to get out on the hills yesterday with a couple of ex- firefigher colleagues and we battled the high winds and heavy cloud which definately helped blow any lingering cobwebs away.

Snowdon was really busy helped by the fact that all the snow has more or less gone.


Best wishes to everyone have a great new year, and I look forward to catching up with you all  in 2021.

Hwyl

Keith





Last update before Christmas

Posted on 21 December, 2019 at 5:10 Comments comments (280)

With a recent arrival of bookings it looks like next year will be busy for me again. This is a great time to book your preferred walk date and gives you a look forward to a fantastic day out on our lovely mountains, which ever one you choose!


To any one viewing for the first time you will have noticed that this is not a flash website with automatic forms and tick boxes etc!

I think it is important to talk to anyone and everyone booking or thinking of booking with me to ensure that they get the best out of their day on the mountain. Then when we meet up its like meeting an old friend, a much nicer way to start our day out.

The low tech diary is kept up to date, just have a look at the date you require it will give you a good idea how things are looking but I always reccomend that you get in touch even if I am showing no availability. 

Some old photos of the halfway cafe, construction of the new summit cafe and an old advert for the old summit cafe.


Take heed of the goats!

Posted on 19 December, 2019 at 17:30 Comments comments (0)

Myself and Andy geared up for a day on Snowdon earlier in the week, the forecast was not good with high winds, rain and hail promised but we neede to get out there!

As we arrived at a wet and quiet Pen y Pass the weather was as promised, wet, cold and windy and we were still in the car! But off we set, calling into the Wardens office first, we found the mountain goats had decided to use the facilities and were hiding in the ladies toilet, that questioned our decision to go up the hill!


Off we set on the Miners Path reaching as far as the intersection with the Pyg, wether was closing in now so we abandoned ship and headed back down the Pyg and for a change headed over the Horns from Bwlch y Moch arriving back at Pen y Pass just as a rain bomb arrived.

Even as we were heading down there were quite a few people heading up some had kit some didnt, usual story!  but not good given the current conditions and the incoming weather. Hey ho.


Couple of photos of the wise goats!


Slipping & Sliding on the ice

Posted on 2 December, 2019 at 16:00 Comments comments (0)

This cold snap has left us with some very slippy rocks and paths, even at low level!

Managed to get out onto the Glyders with Linda accompanied by Elsie the thief dog, just cant put anything down cos she will have it ! A good day out though apart from dodging the ice on the way back to the Ogwen Centre.


This weather does bring clear skies and great sunrises.


Enjoying the calm

Posted on 24 November, 2019 at 11:10 Comments comments (0)

Just enjoying the calm that we now have on the hills although, the snow is attracting a few out and not all are prepared!


I am out on the hills enjoying myself, planning new routes etc and doing some me time walks, I will put out a full report next week.


Catch up soon


Back in the Snow

Posted on 11 November, 2019 at 16:25 Comments comments (0)

Well they did rebook and we managed to get out on Saturday along with a big dump of snow and sleet who also came out to play. That meant we only managed to get the group of Students from St Georges University, London just over half way.

Was still a great day out though and they enjoyed it!




Work cancelled

Posted on 4 November, 2019 at 9:15 Comments comments (0)

Well that was a wasted weekend for me, Saturday's walk was cancelled at the last minute with a half promise that it would take place this coming Saturday, I woont hold my breath!

Thats more or less the end of the walking season here so that means I will be roaming the hills and mountains looking for new and interesting routes for next year and of course catching up on all the things that I needed to do at home.

I have had a few bookings for next year already so shall be puting up the new diary very soon, always best to book early to secure your prefered date.


Some great FB photos of a sunrise Snowdon walk that I did not take but deserve some viewings!


Where did that white stuff come from?

Posted on 28 October, 2019 at 7:50 Comments comments (163)

Well that was a bit of a surprise for our Saturday walk up Snowdon, a good covering of snow from 800mtrs! it  did make for an exciting day out though for my group from HF Craflwyn, and very enjoyable it was too.


Sunday it was again a group from HF Craflwyn but this time we were out on a greasy rock  Nantlle Ridge walk, now that did make for an interesting scramble across the rocks, but although very cold with a biting wind the sun was out from 11am so another great day out. 



End of season

Posted on 25 October, 2019 at 3:05 Comments comments (55)

Well its here, the last days of the season for summer walking!


The clocks go back on Sunday, the Snowdon summit complex closes on Sunday and the the Volunteer Wardens stand down for the winter break!


Good news is I can now get out and do some serious trekinn on the hills and mountains :)


I am off to Craflwyn now for a four day guided walking trip, but the weather tomorrow looks pretty griim, as luck happens I am dowm to lead a lower level walk with a big Carneddau walk planned for the Sunday when the weather looks much better.


 Plenty of time to get out on the mountains with the Snowdonia Walker, so book now before the snow comes!


Cheers

Keith

Catch up

Posted on 11 October, 2019 at 3:55 Comments comments (1)

Lots been happening over the past couple of weeks so here is a brief catch up, hopefully as it gets quieter I will have more regular updates.

The end of September saw me attendnig two days with Mike Raine  which included spedning a day with the Snowdonia Sherperdess Teleri Fielden. What a great day spent on her farm in Nant Gwynant talikg about conservation farming and all its issues, the other day with Mike was spent in Cwm Idwal discussing ML related topics and was again a great interactive, informative day out. 


The following week was a four day trip to HF Craflwyn with a couple of private Snowdon guided walking days thrown in, so a really busy few days in mixed weather. It was good to get out into the Moelwyns and Glyders as well as the Snowdon trips meeting lots of new people on the way.


There is the National 3Peaks litter gathering day this Saurday (12th) where lots of dedicated people roam the mountains of the UK picking up litter and get into those hard to get to places giving the mountain a deep clean. I am working on this day but will also be picking up on the way.


Looking forward now to getting to the end of October when it does get a lot quieter and enables me to get out for some social walking etc, with over 60 Snowdon walks done this summer along with all the other mountain areas I think I deserve some chill time :)


Some photos from the last few days out on the hills.


Orrible Weather on the way!

Posted on 26 September, 2019 at 9:20 Comments comments (1)

Looks like the weekend weather will be a bit on the wild side for us so if you are coming over, bring your wet gear!


It's an education weekend for me, out with Mike Raine & Teleri Fielden (the Welsh Sheperdess) on Saturday talking and learning about all things to do with mountain farming and the envirionment etc. Sunday its back out with Mike for a day around the Ogwen Valley, this is a Mountain Leader specific day and a new programme from Mike.

Monday sees me working for the Snowdonia Society supporting a big litter pick on Snowdon before I head off to Craflwyn Hall for 4 days leading walks in the area,

I hope the weather is kind to us this October, its a great time to be out on the hills, quieter, cooler and the colours on the trees as they start changing are stunning. 

Might see you out there.


Trying to dry my base layer out on a humid hot day!



Paul's Bucket List Snowdon Adventure

Posted on 24 September, 2019 at 13:55 Comments comments (0)

Paul one of my old mates and work collegue from back in the day had a Snowdon Summit climb on his to do list and we made plans some time ago to go up on September 23rd, he promised me he had been training - He lied! nine holes of golf does not count!


Taking the Rhyd Ddu path we started off and there was a bit of puffing and sucking in air whilst we were still on the road, I realised then we were in for an extended day on the hill :).


Weather was cloudy to start but with a promise to clear by 1pm but only for a couple of hours, and then the heavens would open, which is exactly what happened!

As we climbed and creeped our way to the summit we were buffeted with really strong winds but, we got there just as a train was pulling into the summit station so I suggested to Paul that we neede to get to the top before the train passengers, he didnt beleive me and I laughed as they all coasted past him on the steps towards the summit cairn, we chuckled about that.


It was great to get inside out of the weather for refreshments and bang on time the clouds lifted and the views came, does not matter how many times I see them, they are stunning!

Off we headed down, slow at first and then more slowly as Paul's legs decided they had done enough for the day, buy hey there was no giving up even as the rain lashed down and we finally touched base some seven and a half hours of hard graft later, but it was still a fantastic day out and a great achievement from Paul, not sure whether he will venture out again with the |Snowdonia Walker though :(



 

Southern Snowdonia

Posted on 23 September, 2019 at 0:10 Comments comments (0)

Great week down in Dolgellau exploring the hills and mountains, bonus of course was the good weather. Managed to get onto the high Rhinogydd and the Dragons Back as well as a nice coastal walk finishing in Fairbourne, very mixed programme and a nice change from Snowdon.


Back on a very hot Snowdon last Saturday working for Large outdoord with just the one young lady guest who romped up the mountain (Watkin Path) with ease, as expected the summit was PACKED!

Snowdon again a couple of times this week before joining Mike Raine on a couple of day workshops, one of those with the Welsh Sheperdess Teleri. 


Still time to book walks for this year, best before the clocks go back!


Photos are Derfel on Diffwys and some interesting land formation, on the Dragons Back and looking over to Barmouth
