This was the day for climbing Mt Snowden which is situated in the north-west of Wales as part of Snowdonia national park. It is Britain’s highest mountain. We should have been more prepared. It was sunny, a weekend and the school holidays. The number of people was overwhelming: car parks full, climbers everywhere. As a last resort we think of taking the train to the top (yes, there is an easy option) but even that was booked out until late afternoon. Go to Plan B – Caernarfon.
