A day guiding on Snowdon

I don’t do much guiding on Snowdon but I do really enjoy it when I do, a day hillwalking with nice people, in the sun, what’s not to like!

It was Melvyn’s 60 birthday a few days earlier and his daughter had paid for him, his friend and his son in law to come up to Llanberis for the weekend and climb Snowdon.

They got super lucky with the weather, sunny with enough of a breeze to keep us cool. We started at 0900 and they kept up a good pace the whole way up making the summit by 1130 so we had our summit shots and took an early lunch before wandering down.

It was super busy up there but the lower we got, the quieter it became which was nice and we were back in Llanberis by 1400, they made really good time and were an absolute pleasure to be with.

Check out my hillwalking page if you’re looking to be guided up a route or learn some hillwalking / navigation skills.
