The Snowdon Horseshoe one of my favourite little adventures and an outstanding ridge walk, that involved walking, scrambling and an amazing sense of exposure.
The total ascent is 1152 meters, reaching a maximum height of 1,085 meters on the top of Snowdon.
Do not attempt in bad weather or strong winds!
As you can see from the picture above, it involves Srambling across the "knife-edged" arête or ridge for several hundred meters, know as Crib Goch. This will involve using your hands and feet. This gives you the most amazing sense of exposure as there is an 800 meter drop either side on you as you move across the top with is only a couple of feet wide! It's exhilaration though and the views as you can see below are outstanding!
I've wild camped several times on the lake at the base of Snowdon. Every time I have done so, I have had the lake to myself. You camp with Snowdon as a back drop! Such a dramatic place to wild camp!
It really is quite an adventure and one of my favourites!
