A very popular route giving a good mountain experience with easy access from Pen Y Pass.

  • Length - 7.5 miles / 12.2 km
  • Ascent - 2510 feet / 761 metres
  • Duration - Approx 4 - 5 hours
  • Grade - Moderate
  • Start - grid reference SH647555

Starts at Pen Y Pass car park (car parking fees are now £10.00 per day so its best to get the Sherpa bus for £1.50 from Llanberis High Street or the Nant Peris Park and Ride)

Please remember, you should ensure you are well equipped with good footwear, adequate food and drinks plus clothing to cater for worsening weather conditions which could come upon you very quickly if you haven't fully prepared. (Treat the mountain with respect, remember you are climbing 3560 feet to the summit.)
