SNOWDON CHALLENGE – JUNE 2020
June 27, 2020 @ 7:30 am - 3:30 pm BST
FANCY CLIMBING A MOUNTAIN?
If “climbing a mountain” is on your bucket list, then there's no better way to climb England and Wales's highest mountain than with a friendly group of people, led by an experienced walk leader.
DATES: 27th June 2020
- Walking up the Pyg Track, and then return via the Llanberis route (easy decline)
- Full day's walking, bring a packed lunch.
- Training plan provided.
- Support and encouragement to those who may need that extra bit of help to reach their goal.
This is a one-day event, although you can easily make it into a weekend event if you so wish.
We will meet at the YHA Pen-Y-Pass hostel car park bright and early at 6am for your full briefing. At 6.15am we will then head off on the Pyg track.
The walk from start to finish will take between 5-7 hours depending on the group.
Parking at Pen-Y-Pass is £10 per day and there are limited spaces, so you will either need to arrive very early, or you can use the park and ride at Nant Peris service for £2. Click here for timetables.
For those staying at the YHA you are able to get a car park pass which trims a few £'s off the price of the parking.
This trip does not include accommodation, therefore, you will need to book your own if you do not want to drive down to Wales on the day.
ADVENTURE GEEK WALK LEADERS WILL BE STAYING AT YHA
The Adventure Geek Walk Leaders will be staying at the YHA Pen-Y-Pass on Friday, 26th June and Saturday 27th June – then driving home on Sunday 28th. If you wish to stay at the same hostel (which is modern, clean and inexpensive) then please book asap. The hostel gets booked up months in advance. Price from £22 per person per night.
