Nothing original about this route, but it's still as good a climb as there is anywhere to reach Snowdon via the PYG Track, even if the Miner's return again seemed to go on a little longer than it should. No hope of getting near Pen y Pass after noon on a summer Sunday and very lucky to squeeze into the last space a mile below... Stunning clear views and a good beer on top.
