I would love to take you hill walking in Snowdonia and show you the fascinating insights I have gained over thirty years of mountaineering in the UK. This experience will take you on a circular walk over the Moelwyn mountains, through abandoned quarries full of industrial heritage, and back to the start via the stunning Cwmorthin valley. 11km, with around 800m uphill. One or two bits can be quite strenuous. We will meet at a cafe near Blaenau Ffestiniog at 10:00am, and explore our plans for the day together. After a cuppa, we will aim to be out on the hill by 10:30am, hiking through the amazing Snowdonian mountains until around 4:00pm. During the day we will: - Walk; on a route I love, and am sure you will too. - Talk; explore interesting insights and discuss the mountain environment and industrial heritage around us - Relax; hill walking can be hard work, but it is joyful! While I can't guarantee the weather, the mountains never fail to delight me. I hope they will you too. You will need a reasonable level of fitness for this experience, but we will take things fairly gently!
El teu amfitrió
I am passionate about the mountains of North Wales and love showing people some of the hidden gems to be found not too far off the beaten track. My mountain qualifications include a Mountain Leadership award (2013), and a Rock Climbing Instructor award (2006). I was born in Scotland and raised in the highlands and have been walking in the mountains since I was a child. There is still nowhere else I'd rather be. For me, I find joy and peace most when in the mountains. I'd love to share that delight with you too
This day out will include the following mountain summits - Moelwyn Bach (710m) - Moelwyn Mawr (770m) - Moel yr Hydd (647m) and will visit the abandoned slate quarries of Conglog/ Glyn Ffestioniog and Cwmorthin. The walk back down the Cwmorthin valley offers a relaxing end to the day. In the right weather the reflections in the Llyn Cwmorthin are quite spectacular.
