When to go

April to September


From £70pp

This adventure takes place near Llanberis (Wales), a stunning lakeside village at the foot of Snowdon, surrounded by mountains, lakes and rivers. Snowdon stands at 1085 metres above sea level and, as the highest peak, it’s popular with hill walkers. If you want a more remote route then the South ridge is the way to go, with superb views and a challenging route. 

On the day you can expect your guide to meet you at 8.30am in Pete's Eat cafe, Llanberis. From there you'll set off by car to the start point and begin your epic ascent. 

All in all this is a fantastic option because it’s very easy to organise and requires minimal kit and moderate fitness. We recommend you first send the guide a booking request to agree a date. Then book your accommodation. Adventure sorted!

I have known Geo for around 25 years. We've climbed together and worked together on many occasions over this time. He has a thoughtful, analytical and technical approach to climbing which benefits his students very well.
