Was at Snowdon summit for organised event but was given permission to make a quick deviation to S1618 on the way down. Saw a herd of hairy goats close to trig, not at all bothered by my presence.

Fabulous views across to Snowdon, back to Llanberis and down to Lynn Llydaw. I spent a clear night up here right next to the trig using just my sleeping bag (bivvy wasn't necessary). Nobody else up here after 9pm but plenty of noise from the folk opposite on Snowdon until they gave up. Sunset at about 9.45, then first walkers arrived at 4am but no more until 7 as I was leaving

Walked over again from Snowdon even this summit was busy,the top of the trig has gone now and whats left is in a poor state.Returned to pen y pass via crib coch never done it this way before usually doing it at the start and this way there was a lot of tricky downclimbing to be done which needed great care

Stopped overnight in pen y pass YHA ready for an early start.Headed up the pyg track and up crib goch and crib y Ddysgl route which certainly made me feel alive!A lot of scrambling leads to the final dome.What a sensational view was on offer today the mountain gods were on my side as I logged my 1000th trig.Sadly the trig was in a sorry state which is a shame for the highest primary in England and Wales which was here before snowdons trig.Cannot believe I've done so many would have stopped but mates had encouraged me to keep going!

Although the weather today turned out to be rather wet, at least it wasn't too cold, well, not until that is, the water got the better of my not-so-water-proof waterproofs, which also resulted in my wallet and contents becoming soaking wet and my iPhone packing in, still, the walk up the mountain wasn't too bad, I've done it in much harsher conditions before. After making my way down from Garnedd Ugain, I then rejoined the path and made my way to Yr Wyddfa, where oddly, the summit train passed carrying just gas cylinders! No views today, head in clouds.

Came up the Pyg Track from Pen-y-Pass. The notice bard said that it was the most challenging tracks up Snowdon but I tohught not - it was a steady and interesting climb. On reaching the col I turned right and came the short distance up to this trig and summit before backtracking and going up Snowdon. Cloud and no visibility greeted me on this top but luckily the weather cleared fr me after this.

Came to Snowdonia especially to do the Snowdon Horseshoe – stayed in Llandudno for two nights with my old work mates Bob and Geoff. Very good weather with no wind and some sunshine making the attempt possible for us. Not been on this route since the mid 70s and its got much more difficult and scary since then. Quite a few folks on Crib Goch mostly overtaking us but by the time we reached the railway there were dozens of walkers about. Great viewing conditions.

Ran up to subsidIiary summit, whilst family had tea in café. Descent via Watkin Path, in the mist, unexpectedly precipitous off the summit. Needed all my faith in the compass to convince the ladies we were going the right way! Had views by the time we reached Y Lliwedd, then steady yomp back to car. Chinky nosh for late dinner.

A totally gratuitous trig bag at the time as there were too many people coming up Crib Goch to enjoy a descent with a big rucsac. Down to Pen y Pass via the Miners Path. Bus to camp in Nant Peris. Day only ruined by seeing England lose on penalties to the Germans in the Veynol Arms.

On a backpack around various Welsh tops.. Last day, up from Deiniolen and Llanberis and down Crib Goch. Missed out Yr Wyddfa, thought it would be a good trick on a first visit, was rather proud of never having been up the thing in those days. Pillar was Ok back then. Had a brew before descending Crib y Ddysgl/Crib Goch, the ridge almost deserted on a bank holiday Monday. Few descend this way. Fun with a big pack but easy. This is the original Snowdon Pillar, the Wyddfa one coming later.
