In 1923, George Mallory was asked by a reporter "Why do you want to climb Mount Everest?" and Mallory's response was "Because it's there". There is an overwhelming sense of achievement when you walk over that last crest and realise there is no more mountain to climb. The views from the top are spectacular. Looking out across the tops of other mountains, down through the glacial valleys and possibly out to sea. Head back to work after a long weekend in the mountains with a thirst for more, stories to tell and pictures to flaunt.

The jagged peaks, steep rocky slopes and airy ridge lines will make anyone feel like a proper mountaineer when climbing to the summit of the peaks in Snowdonia. Formed over 650 million years, the peaks of Snowdonia were created from ancient oceans, volcanoes and glaciers. Evidence of their dramatic birth is still evident across the national park, you just need to know where to look!
Sir Edmond Hillary used these mountains to train for Mount Everest before his successful first ascent in 1953! There is something for everyone in North Wales so take your pick. Snowdon isn't the only mountain here!
