The Snowdon Horseshoe is often described as one of the best ridge walks in Wales with ‘interesting’ terrain and amazing views but with grade one scrambles, a knife-edged arête and big drops to contend with it’s certainly not for the faint-hearted. The route is made up of a horseshoe shaped ring of ridges and peaks on Snowdon’s eastern side and makes for a great mountain day suitable for most.
It starts with an easy climb from Pen y Pass along the Pyg Track before veering off to tackle the exposed ridge of Crib Goch. The bravest will march confidently along the top whilst the more nervous will be on all fours with most people managing a bit of both! The pinnacles give you a bit of easy vertical scrambling before the easy walk to Snowdon’s summit. You’ll then descend to the south to the rough, rocky Y Lliwedd with its amazing views back to Crib Goch then further down into Cwm Dyli before joining the Miners’ Track back to the start.
We can take you and your family, small group of friends or whole organisation around the Snowdon Horseshoe at any time of the spring, summer or autumn (conditions depending). We’ll chat to you in advance, discuss your needs and ensure you’ve got the right gear for an enjoyable day out. On the day we’ll meet you at the start point and guide you safely along the route and supply you with entertaining facts and bad jokes along the way.
WARNING: Whilst this activity is suitable for most we wouldn’t recommend it to those with a fear of heights!
