Description

Master the Welsh mountains as I guide you to all 14 peaks in Snowdonia that reach over 900 meters (3,000ft). Look no further for your next mountain adventure, and witness breathtaking vistas.

The mystical mountain range is scattered with myths and legends, including King Arthur’s heroic battle with a giant who was then buried atop the summit of Snowdon, that reaches 1,085 meters (3,560ft).

Snowdonia is also home to many rare plants and animals, including feral goats, otters, ravens and ospreys.

Discover the excellent scrambling on Tryfan’s North Ridge, one of Britain’s most famous peaks. As well as Bristly Ridge and Crib Goch, the knife-edged arête that is a challenging section of the route.

Other summits on our 3-day hike include Y Garn (947m; 3,107ft) and Elidir Fawr (924m; 3,031ft), both on the Glyderau. With Snowdon to its south and Carneddau to its north, both of which we will scale, the Glyderau offers one of the best panoramas of the whole of Snowdonia.

Over our 3-day challenge across the mountain ranges, we will return to the valley each day.

Due to the amount of activity involved, hiking and scrambling, it is necessary to have a good level of fitness before beginning the trip.

Reserve your place now and reach the peak experience of the Welsh mountains, which are packed with ancient myths and legends.

Mountain Guide

I hold a Mountaineering Instructor Certificate (MIC). I am fully qualified to guide and instruct all aspects of mountaineering and climbing in the UK throughout the year. Also, I am a full member of the Mountain Training Association (MTA) and the Association of Mountaineering Instructors (AMI).

I love climbing and this passion has taken me all over the world, even to the summit of Mount Everest. I have also climbed in the Andes, as well as in the Alps, Norway and Canada. I reached the summit of Mount Everest on May 2001, as a member of the RAF Mountain Rescue Service Everest North Ridge expedition.

I first started mountaineering in Scotland with the RAF Mountain Rescue Service, over 20 years ago. Since then, I haven't stopped climbing and exploring new mountains in the UK and abroad. I have been a RAF Mountain Rescue Team Leader and also the Chief Instructor for 5 years. I have also climbed all the Munros, the Scottish peaks above 3000 feet.

I love climbing around North Wales and the rest of the UK. We have so many amazing climbing and scrambling spots to discover in this area! I enjoy taking my clients there for rock climbing, scrambling and mountain skills courses or for a guided day out.

We can set up a program according to your level and wishes. Contact me and we can start planning your next mountain adventure right away!

Dewi was great..! I really struggled with self motivation. Dewi believed in me. A few rests on the way up & we made it. Honestly the views were breathtaking..! One of the best things I have done in the UK. Dewi was a real asset to the company & very knowledgable. Definitely recommend booking a guide.

I had an amazing day scrambling up North Ridge of Tryfan then Bristly Ridge walking to the Glyders and back Y Gribin. I was pushed me out of my comfort zone and I am really glad for it! The place is incredible! I can honestly say that was one of my best days of my life! Thank you! :)
