    First thing in the morning it was quite claggy and raining but after that it was glorious!

    We went up Crib Goch and it was very wet and windy and my friend felt VERY uneasy so after reaching the summit we just picked a route down off the south side all the way to the grassy bottom and picked up the Miners Track to go back up to the marker stone and get CG then YW. My friend was quite drained after the experience so told me and my brother to crack on and he would meet us with the van at Ogwen.

    We took the drop off from Clogwyn down to Nant Peris which was fine. Pretty uneventful from there - great weather. My brother made it to Ogwen and then called it a day, took the van on to Aber. I cracked the last leg and met him at Aber.

    long shot due to short notice,
    but is anybody available TOMORROW (Friday 7th July)
    who knows Crib Goch,
    who would be willing to chaperone me over it
    - I'm OK with height/exposure/scrambling, but I've never done it before and don't fancy doing it for the first time on my own.
    (weather forecast is clear for middle of day)

    LAST CALL!
    if nobody has PM'd me their phone no by 10pm (and doesn't mind me ringing that late), I'll have to sack off this idea...

    You'll be 'reet! It's pretty straightforward tbh. If the weathers decent it'll be a great day out. I've done it a couple of times solo with no issues, including the first time I did it.

    Has anyone got a schedule starting at Snowdon fir around 7-8 hours, other than Thomas Firbanks 8:25 from the book? I'm going to bivvy in a couple of weeks and solo it.

    Hi, I did it in 11 hours but started at Nantgwnant (Same as V3k start) and took 90 minutes to get to the top of Snowdon and longer descent to the finish at Abergwngregyn.

    Here's a link to my strava.

    So this would be a roughly 8-9 hours and if you look at the laps times, you will find the times from one top to another.
