Fun climb up Snowden following the Pyg track. Cloudy day so not much of a view from the top but plenty of people around as always. All in all a great day but it's popularity means it'll never be the most peaceful trig to visit!

Never done this mountain before in summer always the winter, and the number of people today out walking was phenomenal.The conditions were about as good as you could get walked up the pyg track helped an old guy walking up on his own who had fallen and i was concerned for his safety he was 84! and would not stop or take a drink.Anyway i stayed behind him and caught him a few times when he stumbled many bad accidents have occurred here in the past so i was glad when Bob made the summit.The top was even more packed than i had ever seen it before and had to queue to touch the trig.Another bonus for me was to see the train running for the first time and to be able to go in the cafe where i had a cold beer.You can easily see why snowdon is the most popular accessible mountain in the country.

We had this route planned. Walk up The Rangers path that starts off from the station car park. Somehow we ended up at Rhyd Ddu car park, also at a station. All was well with amazing views until we got to the ridge not far from the summit. 1000 ft drop on both sides! It was a good job that it was up in the clouds and we couldn't see down. This is the SCARIEST path I have ever been on!! Very busy and no views at the pillar.

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 trig point Garnedd Ugain, I then made my way to Yr Wyddfa, where oddly, the summit train passed carrying just gas cylinders!

Up and down via the Miners Track to complete our 5 mountain challenge of the British Isles. Pouring rain from first to last step with high wind and poor visibility.Peered hopefully into the summit cafe for signs of life and a warming drink but there was nothing doing.

Visited Snowdon summit 3-4 times over time but as only recently started logging trig visits on this site, am now logging my last visit. Cannot remember which year but definitely in June and when some friends were taking part in the Three Peak Challenge, this being their final peak. Typical mountain weather-pleasant when we left the car but gale force winds and freezing by the trig point [to which I was hanging on to with gritted teeth, hence awful photo!]. It snowed/hailed on our way down back to the car which was still in sunshine! From memory the trig is in good condition and views superb [although not on this visit!]; wonderful place to be whatever the weather!

We took the easy walk up from Llanberis, it was hot but not unbearable. We've enjoyed walking up here many times over the years, it's always been fun, but not today. We've never encountered so many obnoxious people in one place before. A girl told me to "hurry up" as she wanted to climb up on to the "thing" to have here photo taken. I of course took my time.

What a day to pick to tackle Snowdon… It was wet, blowing half a gale and bitterly cold at the summit. Very few people up here this morning and only one, a German tourist, outside the cafeteria. He kindly took the photo of me at the pillar. Visibility just a few feet. The low marks out of 10 reflect the conditions on the day.

I'll give it a 10 for its significance and views and hill climbing experience but would only give the actual trig visit a 1 as it involves a lot of jostling to get up the steps and back down on a busy day. I thought summit rage was going to break out at one time. Trying to secure my photo of the flush bracket took a bit of time.

I came up on the Watkin Path, with a little detour to take in Y Lliwedd first. The last 300 metres of ascent was through dense cloud. Even still, the summit was as busy as ever and it was a struggle to get a picture of the flush bracket. I don't know if I saw BLACKCATWHITEFEET when I was up there, but I did see a poor bedraggled girl dressed up as a banana. I headed down on the Llanberis path, calling by Garnedd Ugain trig pillar along the way.

Above date is most recent of twenty visits, first in 1975. Round, stone built topograph. Pillar and platform rebuilt in 2000 with view indicator set into top. There was a small cairn recorded on the top in 1805 and the large cairn, on which stands the trig point, was first constructed in 1827 by the OS surveyors. New cafe is an improvement on the former one though it was too cloudy to see it, or anything else, properly today.

I can't say the trig condition is good because there isn't a trig, just a topograph with the flush bracket mounted on it. A beautiful day, we came up early(ish) via the Pyg track and back via the Miners' track. 10 for the view, 1 for the lack of peace, train and shop.

Superb round stone-built trig with brass spider with indented lettering in centre of view-indicator, an impressive bit of wokmanship. Would easily earn 10/10 if not for that railway monstrosity,although the new building better visually than the old one. Previously visited this Furth of Scotland Munro 08/05/87 by way of Crib-goch and Crib-y-ddysgl which I repeated today with the inclusion this time of Craig Fach to complete the Welsh Sims ( Sixhundred Metre Summits ).

Usual lack of view not least for the numbers of flip-flopped visitors to the summit. 2nd ascent in 12 months - a lot warmer this time - but still cold and drizzly on an otherwise warm sunny day elsewhere.

Weather not brilliant, cloudy base occurred just before going under second rail bridge, although the day before there were 70mph gusts so we were lucky. 3 hour walk up the Llanberis path, started out at 8.15am to avoid the tourists, and boy are they ill prepared tourists, this is a MOUNTAIN!!!! The whole experience makes this a 10/10 for us. Thank you to all that helped us prepare for this trip, we really did feel on top of the world together, and make this our 50th trig.

Four ascents in 3 days - all by different routes. Rhyd-Ddu (hated the narrow ridge), Pyg, Snowdon Ranger (easiest) and lastly Watkins (best route). First 3 times thick cloud at top but fourth time lucky - brilliant sunshine with a sea of cloud a few hundred feet below which gradually cleared. New cafe quite nice. Unbelievably crowded - I had to queue behind about 10 others to get to the topograph.

Went from Llanberis as part of DoE Gold exped.. If you want to avoid the ill prepared tourists on the Llanberis track, you will have to be early. I have heard stories of people queing to get up before! Unfortunately, the weather was not as good as many other photo's show and the mist was so poor you could hardly see down the steps to just below the trig. Couldn't see the cafe very well either, but from what I saw (and heard) it was very nice. After Snowdon, we continued down the pyg track to Pen-y-pass. Nice climb but nicer weather could have made it a lot better!

Round stone pillar more a tourist attraction than a trig point. Metal plug [indented letters] at centre of elaborate view finder. Public. Access Land. Snowdonia National Park. New summit complex not quite open. New steps provide easier & safer access to pillar, but have an 'approach to the shrine' feel. Still, highest place in the British Isles outside Scotland, with a feeling of immense loftiness. As an alternative to the usual routes, try an ascent of the south ridge from Rhyd Ddu.

I thought it was in the same year, d*mn - back to the drawing board! Oh well, at least it was a glorious day and the final day of our hols, long drive home in the evening though. We did the classic horeshoe walk up from Pen-y-Pass, over Crib Goch, Snowdon summit and return via Y Lliwed, one of the best circular walks we've done, but the weather made it.

An early start saw us taking the Pyg path to the summit from car park at Pen-y-pass. Although only cloudy on the way up it was a howling gale by the time we reached the railway track with little visibility. Hung on for dear life to the stone built circular trig point. First five figure number I have recorded. Was this trig point a much later addition as a replacement and renumbered? I am quite new to this logging trig points and have caught the bug so I may be proved to be hopelessly wrong in my surmising.(I dont look for any information on a trig until I have loggged it myself it takes away a lot of the excitement.)

We came up via the Miners Path to find lots of people milling around the summit/building site, managed to spend a little while at the Trig Point without getting pushed off but definitely the busiest mountain we've been up! Went back down via the Llanberis path which we thought was nowhere near as interesting.

Plan was to start the Pyg Track from Pen-y-Pass YHA, but ended up having to park a fair distance down from Pen-y-Gwyrd. Such is a typical summer Bank Holiday in the UK. Do remember that an early start is advised to get a parking space unless you fancy a trek up from Llanberis town centre. Overcast day, but not unpleasant for the time of year. Spider on the top of the pillar is really impressive, expect it to be one of the best in the UK. I didn't get a photo this time but like I said, there was quite a queue and not much space to get a clear shot without elbowing a fellow walker off the platform! Nice day though. We took the Miners Track back down as usual. A nice but damp day out.

Parked just below Pen-y-Pass car park and set out to do Snowdon Horse shoe. Crib Goch clear but cloudy further along the ridge. Joined the crowds at the summit trig, low cloud so views restricted. Typical for us - Cloud lifted by the time we completed the South loop up to Y Lliwedd and descended back to the Miners Track. (Pre Trig days -hence no FB or GR logged)

Have walked up here many times but decided to log this particular date as it was done as the last of the 3 Peaks that we did over the period of a week. Very foggy this day. We'd wanted to do the Crib Goch ciruit but due to no view we didn't. Have done it since though and wonderful it is.

Been coming to Wales for some many years and fginally got up here! A great walk, but awful visibility on the top - I think it would have felt wrong if it had been clear. Arrived with Lou, Ian, and Jo.

This is as focused as was possible in the weather At last I finally summit on Snowdon. Weather suitabley poor. I wonder what views are like from here. Ian, Jo, Lou and I not exactly looking our best!

The date is very arbitrary as I've been up Snowdown sevarla times. First (and easiest) ascent was about 1972 by train - I was only 11. Since then I've been up via the Miners Track & PYG track more than once, but the most exhilarating must be via Crib Goch. On one occaision this was extended to do the horseshoe over Llewedd. Will try and come up with exact date(s)

Nicely placed, right by a railway station, and no nettles nor barbed wire. Stone built. There is some speculation that the survey pillar is the one over on Carnedd Ugain, and this one was built to answer expectations of a trig pillar.

I was part of a 1991 Events Team and we were raising sponsorship money for the Action & Research for Multiple Sclerosis charity. We were a team of ten carrying a colleague up to the summit on a kind of sedan chair (8 carrying & 2 resting in 20 minute relays). I remember we reached the summit in just under three hours, and all crowded round the trigpoint pillar in a collapsed heap. I've been up again since that memorable day, but it was never quite as good as that first time....

Logged retrospectively from 2010. Visited this trig by the Crib Goch route. Without doubt my bravest adventure in the mountains at that time. Summit very crowded with a stong smell of urine from the poor quality loos. What a travesty to inflict on the highest mountain in Wales. Still the views were fantastic and I hear the new visitor centre is much better.
