November 2nd I flew to Manchester and got a rental car and drove to Snowdon 1085 m in Wales. I got there by the afternoon and the whole parking lot was filled with cars. I did not expect so many other people around since it was november! But there was some kind of holiday or something so there was a lot of people.
I really enjoyed the beautiful landscape during this climb. Totally amazing! I wish I had more time to spend here.
I was late as always. Almost everyone else was on the way down already but a few were still going up and because of the heavy traffic on the mountain I started to race the others. Trying to catch up on them. I remember feeling strong this day, just flying up and down the mountain in under 3 hours in total.
It´s a very easy hiking path to the top. In the end it get a little bit steeper but it was never too hard. A nice sunday walk for the family and your dog.
Up on the top there was fog. This was a common thing for all the mountain in UK and Ireland in the late fall when I climbed them. And a little bit more cold and windy.
On the summit there is this rock thing.
A very nice mountain to climb and a beautiful area to go for hiking and photography. After climbing the mountain I drove back to Manchester to spend the night. Scarfell Pike in England was waiting for me the next day and that got a little bit more adventurous then expected…
