Few facts about Snowdon: 1. Highest mountain in England & Wales. 2. 1058 m/3560 ft high. 3. 8 miles there & back. 4. It's beautiful.
I've always wanted to climb it. Like, always. I text my Australian bff, Alex, a couple of days before & said 'Hey, wanna climb Snowdon next Sunday?', he quickly replied 'Yeah, sure', with little idea what he was letting himself in for. Now, Snowdon is a pretty high & tough mountain to climb. People train for it, rescue helicopters are constantly whirring round it & people frequently die whilst climbing. Alex & I went with absolutely no experience in climbing anything before. Kitted out only with backpacks full of haribo, munchies, squashies, galaxy counters & a small bottle of water between us. Absolute pros, some would say.
