PostSubject: Snowdon   Sun Sep 05, 2010 10:00 am

As was mention in the minutes at the last comittee meeting I am planning on a walk up Snowdon. The date I have planned is Sunday the 17th of October 2010. The walk has to be arranged before the end of October as this when the summit shop/cafe closes for winter and its the Carsington duathlon on the 3rd of October and Congleton 1/2 Marathon on the 10th.

The walk will be from Pen-y-pass Carpark and probably be up the Miners Track and down the Pyg track. The more daring/experianced may want to descend via the Crib Coch ridge route (optional).

Everyone is welcome and anyone intersted in joining me for the day, or as any feedback, then please let me know.

More details will follow nearer the time and depending on the response.

Hi Bill

Sounds great. Include me please.

I have not walked up Snowdon before and it is a walk I have always wanted to do.

At the moment I've had about 6 positive replys to the walk. I will be planning on a 6 hour schedule to ascend and descend the summit including a "refeshment" stop in the cafe. (if open as it's always subject to weather conditions)

I will probaly arrange a rendezvous time and place in Betws y Coed and then drive over to Pen-y-Pass as a group. (this will have to be fairly early as I'm told the car park fills up quite quickly)

Minimum requirements for the walk will be stout walking footwear - I stongly recommend walking boots, Waterproof layers, an additional warm layer, Water or hot drinks depending on weather conditions and personel preference, some energy food in case the cafe is closed, and a comfortable rucksack to put it all in.

Optional kit

Hat, Gloves, walking poles, camara,

I will bring along a map and compass. but anyone else who also has one are welcome to bring them with them, and a basic first aid kit.

P.S. I hope to see more members come along and join me
