Short family break in North Wales...I booked 3 nights at Caernarfon from saturday to tuesday morning for my family ( my wife, our daughter and myself ) to spend some days with my wife's sister and her boys. They are living in London and we travelled from Scotland so the North Wales looked like a good place to meet as it's @ a half way for both families :D We were in Snowdonia in September 2013, enjoyed all the area and also a wee trip to Snowdon summit - my wife with our daughter Cheyenne ( she was one year old only in 2013 ) by the mountain railway, I used Llanberis path to meet them there. It was my first time on Snowdon...second time I enjoyed the beauty of Snowdon summit views in summer 2014 when we finished our successful National Three Peaks Challenge with my brother ( we used Miners track for a change ). I loved Snowdonia from the 1st time and I wanted come again and discover more and more mountains and also get to the Snowdon summit via the famous Crib Goch ridge and complete all the circle - Snowdon Horseshoe.
The longer weekend finally came and we started our journey. Our daughter Cheyenne had 4th Birthady on the saturday so the plan was to celebrate the birthday - partly in the hotel swimming pool that day. On the sunday they wanted visit the town, castle and some shops...good opportunity for me to prepare some short mountain's trip and then join them in the hotel swimming pool afternoon again :clap:
My hope for the short holiday was to do Tryfan, Glyders and The Snowdon Horseshoe. Tickets for the mountain train available only for monday when I booked during the week before.
I enjoyed all the scrambling on Tryfan and Bristly ridge...really beautiful day 8) We were very lucky with the weather - it was really lottery when booked the holiday long time before :o :D

On monday we used our both cars to get to Lllanberis...they wanted visit the town before the train will get them to the Snowdon summit and I headed to Pen Y-Pass to start my climb via Crib Goch, meet them on the Snowdon summit and then continue the Snowdon Horseshoe via Y-Lliwed back to the car park.
Crib Goch route was really great, especially in such a beautiful sunny day...the beer tasted very well on the Snowdon summit when I was waiting them there :lol: :wink: :lol:

Day 2: - monday's Crib Goch & The Snowdon Horseshoe trip here:

It was a great short break in Snowdonia !!! Great time together, some fun with the kids and the weather was just perfect 8) 8) 8)
7 Hewits done, another Snowdon routes completed and looking forward to come back there again in the future...Still a lot of routes to Snowdon to try and also mountains like Cadair Idris, Moel Siabod and many more to do :D :wink:

Petr this is the second time we've both been on the same mountain on the same day and not known it :D

It's a great fun route, judging by your photos you were ahead of me, there wasn't much sitting space on top of Tryfan when I arrived :) Yeah, Snowdonia is a little bit special I think.

Sounds like a perfect family holiday to me Petr, you have some great rocky crags in the images and wonderful shapes in the pinnacles....looks like good steep going in a few places too :clap:

Good to see you made it into Snowdonia again, Petr. These are pretty fine hills, no? Lots of character, and plenty of scrambling if you want it.

And best of all, there are far fewer folk on them than on Snowdon itself :)

thanks Hugh :D I am sure you will love to climb them, you can chose from more routes to enjoy scrambling as much as you want 8)
