As the nights begin to draw in and the temperature begins to drop (a little!) it makes me start to think of the coming months – long shadows, mountainsides glowing in late afternoon sunlight and golden leaves on trees down in the valleys. It is the season of temperature inversions, the first summit frosts and evenings around fires in pubs.
In Autumn 2014 SnowdoniaGudiedWalks.com have organised three guided mountain walks on both Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th October. They are graded to make it easier to choose a day that is suited to your ability, and if you want to make a weekend of it you can choose a harder or easier route the next day, depending on how your legs feel!
The first walk takes in Snowdon, the highest mountain in Wales. It begins in the village of Rhyd-Ddu and climbs to the sumit via one of the quieter routes on the mountain – the South Ridge and the Rhyd Ddu paths. Thsi walk is suitable for complete beginners, or those who want a more gentle mountain walk.Button [line]
The second walk reaches the summit of Moel Siabod, not one of the tallest but one of the more interesting peaks in Snowdonia. This route is suitable for those who want something a little more challenging or who want to try their first experience of some easy scrambling. The walk starts in Capel Curig.Button [line]
Tryfan and Glyder Fach
The third walk is for the more adventurous of experienced – covering two summits, Glyder Fach and Tryfan. Both of these rocky mountains are reached from Ogwen Valley on routes that involve some scrambling.Button [line]
Each walk is led by a qualified and experienced local mountain walk leader, and we keep the ratios to no more than 1:8 so you can ensure that you have a personalised experience.
See you in October!
