More Info

Crib Goch sits at the northern end of Snowdonia National Park in northwestern Wales. The highest point on the peak is an arête that reaches 923 meters in elevation. While this is not so high relative to other major peaks in the United Kingdom, the climb begins from close to sea level.

Scrambling to the top of the arête is the perfect challenge for novice climbers looking to get into the sport. The classic route heads up to the summit via the Pyg track in what is known as the Snowdon Horseshoe. While the climb is not technically difficult, the route is very exposed and can be treacherous, depending on the weather. Sure-footedness is a must.

For those seeking a challenge, the northern route is far more technically difficult but the views along the way and from the top are no less rewarding.
