Snowdon is the perfect mountain to climb for any beginner.

The team will meet at the bus stop (outside the railway station) in llanberis on Saturday at 7.45am. Together you will catch the 8am bus to Pen Y Pass where you will start the hike to the summit.  From the summit you will take the llanberis track which will bring you back to the bus stop where you started. The hike could take anywhere between 6-8 hours.
