Join the UProjects team for a fantastic day walking to the Summit of Mount Snowdon in North Wales
This superb walk is developed in partnership and supported by Oldham Council`s Environmental Service and is featured in the Fit For Oldham project
Recent surveys give the height of the summit as 1,085 metres / 3,560 feet, making Snowdon the highest mountain in Wales, and the highest point in the British Isles outside Scotland.
The walk will be led by Uprojects qualified and experienced mountain leaders who will guide you safely to the summit and the return to Llanberis
This will be a full day of walking taking the scenic Pyg Track up to the summit....
and the Llanberis Path back down to Llanberis (approx. 9 miles in total)....
We will meet at the bus stop opposite the Joe Brown Shop on High Street Llanberis at 07:45 to catch the first bus at 08:00.
This is a good local bus service from Llanberis to the Pen Y Pass car park where the start of the Pyg track is located, this does away with the need to park and leave vehicles at the busy Pan Y Pass car park also enables us to explore two differing paths on the mountain, we can therefore end our days challenge back in Llanberis
We aim to be back in Llanberis no later than 16.30pm and there are ample opportunities for tea and cake at the foot of Snowdon as reward for your achievements
Further information on what clothing and equipment you will need can be provided nearer the event date.
It is worth adding that although the walk is only 9 miles in total this is a serious mountain day with a lot of steep ascent (and descent, consider your knees!)
You will be expected to be responsible for having a good level of walking fitness and be in good health by the event day, we can advise you with your training leading up to the event, training needs to be done on hills!
