Climbing Snowdon

The summit from Llyn Llydaw on the Miners’ Track

If you’re planning on walking up Snowdon (Yr Wyddfa), then you’ve come to the right place.

Many people refer to ‘climbing’ Snowdon, although really it’s just an uphill walk, albeit steep in places.

That said, on some of the main paths you’ll briefly need to use your hands in one or two places.

On this comprehensive website you can find everything you need to know, in addition to information about the six main paths up Snowdon, namely:

The main website menu lists all of these paths individually (or click on the links above), where they are described in detail, together with parking and other facilities.

Separate pages compare their pros and cons and offer suggestions to mix and match paths (always a good idea).

Elsewhere on this website you’ll find information and answers to every aspect of planning a walk up Snowdon, from where to park, which path to take, toilets, the weather, what to wear and take, fitness, safety, and so much more.

There’s also a page for first-timers, who might not know what to expect.
