More Info

Wales may not seem like an obvious mountain climbing destination, which makes it all the better for practicing the sport.

The Cambrian Mountains have plenty of excellent climbing options from Plynlimon, which is the highest point in central Wales at 752 meters above sea level to the 14 peaks in Snowdonia National Park.

Ranging from 900 meters to 1.085 meters in elevation, it is possible to climb all of these peaks over the course of three days. There are many excellent views to be had and the trip starts out simple in order for you to warm up before finishing off with the most difficult peaks in the little country.

Snowdon, however, is the crown jewel of Welsh mountain climbing. With steep rock falls and plenty of obstacles up along the way, it is the perfect peak to practice mountain climbing skills on for tougher climbs. Sir Edmund Hillary even made several ascents of the peak in preparation for Mount Everest.

 

 

 

Good to Know

 

What’s the weather like?

The mountains in Wales, especially in the north, are one of the wettest parts of the British Isles. Bring your rain wear as rain is quite frequent, but don’t let that dampen your spirits. The scenery is simply stunning, especially when the clouds clear. Expect average daily temperatures between 10°C and 15°C during the mountain climbing season.

How getting there?

Any trip to Wales will begin with a flight into Cardiff International Airport (CWL), which can be reached directly from most major European airports. From here, it is easiest to rent a car and drive up into the mountains as public transportation is limited.
