Today was our first day here. So, to break us in gently, we went up Mount Snowdon, the tallest mountain in Wales. We arrived there in the minibus, got all our gear, and headed over to the mountain. The weather was really good, but it was so misty, you were unable to see 10 meters in front of us.
But, after a bit, the fog lifted, and we saw some amazing views. Then we saw mount Snowdon, and we realised just how tiring this was going to be.
So, after a bite to eat, we started to ‘scramble’ (which basically meant climb across the side of the mountain only using our hands and feet) up the mountain. It was quite steep, and the wind didn’t help. Ellie Solly was very scared and wanted to come down because she is scared of the heights.
After that, we walked for about 1-2 hours to get to the summit. We couldn’t see the ground at all because of all the mist, but it was still worth it.
After, we made the long treck down, and in the pouring rain. Then walked back to the minibus. We were all exhausted, but it was worth it for this once in a lifetime climb.
Our overall highlights of the day were:
- Seeing sheep(and talking to them)
- Ellie Solly falling in sheep poo
- Touching the summit marker at the top
