On The Day

Meeting at Garwnant, transport will be taking your group to your start point, Beginners will be starting and ending at the Pen - Y - Fan car park and the route will take you up the one peak and back down, Intermediate and Hard will be taken to a different start point just up the road to the Storey Park Education Centre, all routes will finish at the same place. A guide will be with you at all times.

Hard

Starting off on the same route as the intermediate group, you will be joining up with the beginners for the group photo on top of Pen - Y - Fan, once done you will be descending down another route towards Cribyn Peak, this involves a little bit more of a scramble up and down rocks to reach the 3rd peak, once the awesome views at Cribyn have been taken in you will drop down and circle back up Pen - Y - Fan up very steep slopes and bit more scrambling, once back at the top of Pen - Y - Fan you will go on the final Decent down a much easier route to the car park. 

Intermediate

A slightly harder route, climbing our first peak of Corn Du before slightly descending and climbing Pen - Y - Fan. This route has more of a gravel path and a few more hazards, with a small section of rock scrambling, once you have met up with the Beginners then the easy way down you go.

Beginners

This is the easiest way up Pen - Y - Fan with no scrambling over rocks and a more paved route, take your time going up and enjoy the views. The walk is steep in places but plenty of places to rest, this is a walk not a race. Once at the peak you will be waiting for the intermediate and Hard routes to reach their half way point for a group photo on the peak. 

Hard

Starting off on the same route as the intermediate group, you will be joining up with the beginners for the group photo on top of Pen - Y - Fan, once done you will be descending down another route towards Cribyn Peak, this involves a little bit more of a scramble up and down rocks to reach the 3rd peak, once the awesome views at Cribyn have been taken in you will drop down and circle back up Pen - Y - Fan up very steep slopes and bit more scrambling, once back at the top of Pen - Y - Fan you will go on the final Decent down a much easier route to the car park.

Beginners

This is the easiest way up Mt. Snowdon with no scrambling over rocks and a more outlined route, take your time going up and enjoy the views. The walk is very steep in places but plenty of places to rest, be careful as some parts have very loose footing this is a walk not a race.

A slightly harder route, starting off at Pen - Y - Pass car park you will be heading up the miners path travelling along the side of some great lakes. This route has more of a gravel path and a few more hazards, with a section of rock scrambling, you will be crossing the hard path and joining the group up the final climb, once you have met up with the Beginners then the hard group will be coming down the way you went up.

Hard

Starting off at the same place as the intermediate group, you will be heading up the Pyg Path, heading up some very rough terrain, a non stop scramble up rocks with little rest on flat paths. 3/4 of the way up you will be meeting up with the intermediate group before finishing off the climb all together. Once at the peak you will be travelling down the same way the intermediate walkers came up, following the miners path along the lake side.

Intermediate

Starting off at the Glen Nevis Visitor Centre, crossing the bridge across the river and heading up the mountain. The journey up is a zig zag up the side of the mountain with a brief river crossing before tackling the hard bit. Rock scrambling will be a on going thing up the mountain and very easy to loose your footing. The weather can change very fast and snow is almost a certainty. We will be coming back down the same way you went up.

On The Day

Meeting at Glen Nevis Visitor Centre, we will be following the steep path up the side of the mountain, we will be encountering some rock scrambling along with uneven footing. As we gain ground on the summit be prepared for the snow and almost instant weather change. Its easy to become lost towards the top so make sure you have your eyes on at least one of the guides at this point. Temperatures can fall fast so warm clothing is a must, making sure its easy to grab. This walk will be done in stages, the slower people will leave first and the faster walkers will be bringing up the rear.

On The Day

Meeting at Wasdale Car Park, we will be following the river up the side of the mountain, for about half the way up before branching left. Its easy to stray from the path at this point and towards the top so make sure you have your eyes on at least one of the guides at this. There are small sections of rock scrambling, towards the peak you will be crossing very loose footing. Temperatures can fall fast so warm clothing is a must, making sure its easy to grab. This walk will be done in stages, the slower people will leave first and the faster walkers will be bringing up the rear. 

Intermediate

Starting off at Wasdale Car Park, we will be following the river most of the way up, starting off on grass and gravel paths, progressing onto a cobbled path. The path can get very steep in places and become slippery. about half way up the path forks, we will be sticking to the left and circling around the mountain. The path eases off slightly and the rock scrambling begins. The peak offers some breathtaking views. We will be coming down the same way.
