RARE BITS
North Wales. Completely fantastic. Knowing nothing about it some years ago, I wouldn't have troubled myself to look at it even if dropped there by helicopter.
Teeth cut on the Scottish Munros and 15 years joining the dots across Ireland, what could North Wales possibly offer?
If ever there were an argument for an open mind, North Wales is it.
With a party of the Wee Binnians, NI's elite walking group I ventured into these stunningly exciting hills - and in a snowy March.
We stayed in Caernarfon - wonderful port town with great pubs, restaurants and one of the biggest eff-off castles the English ever built. Plan - to piss off the rebellious Welsh. Result: Sassenach 10 ; Druids 0.
1 mega day in its hills. To be honest I cannot recall the route but it kicked off with something to do with Pigs, included Tryfan, gave us the Glyders (described here a bit dismissively as "obvious" - well, it wasn't to me) and some other wonderful stuff .......
You know how there are memorable days in the hills? This was way up there.
Off this route there is a clamber on to Crib Goch ridge. A couple of us in good shape studied through binos a team battling with the entree on to it and decided to give it a wide berth - so anyone looking for a stomach-churning, might consider this.
Incidentally these are serious hills and not to be dongled around with.
Very best wishes to the team heading off there. If you are mesmerised and as Pete advises (rather cleverly)....., it is not unusual.
