One of my favourite areas in Snowdonia is the Rhinogs or more correctly, in Welsh, the Rhynogydd. It’s quite a small area but the walks are rough, wonderful, and close to the sea. I like camping below the hills, on a favourite site, and also walking and reading on the beach. The photograph above shows the character of the landscape. It’s Cadair Idris in the far distance, the sea is on the right if you turn around. Few people come here.
I’ve climbed Snowdon perhaps eight times. There are multiple routes up the biggest hill of England and Wales, the most exciting of which is along the knife edge Crib Goch. The quietest path is from the other side, in this film, which is particularly enjoyable at the top.
