On the roof of Cymru
by kernowclimber  1 Oct 2013
After the exhilarating exposed ridge climb of Crib Goch we paused to admire wall to wall scenery from the white trig pillar of Garnedd Ugain. From here a quick descent finds you on the Llanberis path (probably with hordes of other people!). From here the path turns left past the impressive Finger Stone on Bwlch Glas which marks the top of the Pyg and Miners’ Tracks. From here there are captivating views down into the gaping chasm of Cwm Uchaf with its mysterious lake, Llyn Glas, and the sight of umpteen people red cheeked and panting their way up to the top of the path. The incongruous sight of a steam train puffing its way up the mountain towards the Hafod Eryri Summit Shelter to disgorge scores of day-trippers makes the experience of Snowdon all the more memorable! A made pathway leads to the crowded summit pillar with its ornate brass plaque behind the shelter. Standing on the roof of Wales watching the ravens and the seagulls whirl on the thermals and staring into what seemed like infinity was truly remarkable. We enjoyed a very leisurely lunch celebrating bagging Wales' highest peak at the cleverly designed and award winning Hafod Eryri Summit Shelter with a cool Snowdon beer (what else?) and a rather dubiously named Welsh pitman’s ‘oggy’. Sadly, the pastry really stuck in my gullet (not because our Welsh cousins have ripped off our Cornish pasty) but because we had been charged a whopping £22 for beer, oggies and 2 small bottles of water!!
