What participants say

"Gale force winds, freezing temperatures and different abilities meant it took 5.5 hours to summit, but we ensured no one was left behind and everyone made it to the top."

"What a challenge! 60mph winds at points and a lot of rain! No stopping, just pure determination."

"Wow. I’ve climbed Mount Snowdon! What an experience. Our incredible guides were just fantastic."

"Well, we did it! We conquered Snowdon! In torrential rain! I spent the day in bed yesterday, and today my calves feel like they’ve shrunk in the wash. But it was worth it!"
