Snowdon, North Wales
Snowdon, 1085m (3561'), is the highest mountain in Wales. In the summer of 1996 Matt & Pip, one of their friends and I spent a day climbing it. There are several routes to the summit, we chose the Horseshoe. We stayed overnight in Pen-y-pass youth hostel and set off from there early-ish the next morning.
