we packed in the miles this week! on our way back from oban we visited friends gav and erika in llandudno. for those who have followed gav's crazy building ventures the results are amazing. on friday the weather seemed kind enough that we could do the snowdon horseshoe. this is a route up to snowdon along the miner's track and then looping left over lliwedd and up to yr wyddfa. jen and i have done plenty of walks but this was another level for us. looking at lliwedd i wondered how on earth it is even possible to go up it. but sure enough there is a path of sorts and putting one step in front of another we made our way up. i have been up once before by the rangers path but this was much more dramatic in terms of views. the top of yr wyddfa never came out of cloud so when we headed up there is was snow and cloud! it was such a wonderful day - exhilirating and we felt we were in safe hands with gav who has run up and down all those routes on multiple occasions. photos of the day are here - snowdon horseshoe
this photo gives a good sense of the scramble up lliwedd - you can see jen making her way up.
