The only comment I can make in print is thank goodness no one was seriously injured and that no one from the Mountain Rescue team was hurt in going out to help these idiots

Reading this story again, I wondered if (these people) are having difficulty finding out information on visiting Snowdonia, the first item on the Webb page..................

Search.. Guide to walking routes up Snowdon | Visit Waleswww.visitwales.com ... Walking
Tips and advice for safely walking up Wales' highest mountain, Snowdon - Yr Wyddfa. ... Please do not travel without checking availability, and do not park anywhere other ... Go for layers - moisture wicking t-shirt, long sleeved top and a fleece.


This is an excellent site, and covers all the basics, it is a must read for the inexperienced, and a good refresher for everyone, there really is no excuse,.

This link should be added to any Snowdonia advertisement nationally.

A man walking for charity gets stranded on Cader Idris and then has to be rescued by another charity, namely the mountain rescue team.
It was a situation that could and should have been avoided with proper planning as the volunteers with the Mountain Rescue are risking their lives with every call out

On Wednesday, Tellytubby and I drove down the A470 to Dolwyddelan to meet up with old Uncle Albert and have a short walk in that area.
The walk we did was from Dolwyddelan following the Afon Lledr as far as Gethin's Bridge where we had a second car to take us back to Dolwyddelan
We were hoping to see the Salmon jumping in the river but realised that the water level was too low to see any but it was such a nice day and just good to get out again in these strange times.      The visibility was excellent and Moel Siabod stood out towering above the beautiful countryside
Just past Pont Y Pant we stopped to have our refreshments on a wide but peaceful section of the river and the old shack was still there on the other bank.  We could have stayed there all day but had to move on so we continued to Lledr Gorge and to the fishermen's platform.  It occupied a position above a deep pool that was a favourite spot for Salmon fishing.  It was quite elaborate in it's design and must have taken some time to construct as there was evidence on both banks of some work having been constructed but we didn't go too near the edge to investigate.
We left the gorge and continued on through woodland and open farm land until we arrived at a wooden bridge that crossed over the Afon Lledr and that was the end of the walk.    We never saw signs of any Salmon but there is always another time but it was a very enjoyable riverside walk.

That's as bad as any day in the Summer.      &shake&

I haven't been up there for a few years now but we always avoided that tourist trap and went up in the quieter months and even then it was never on a weekend

A follow up on the above.............

Queuing to take a selfie at the top of Snowdon is "irresponsible" but a Welsh Government minister stopped short of endorsing a "stay local" travel restriction.

Economy Minister Ken Skates MS criticised the "small minority" of visitors to North Wales who ignored social distancing rules to join a 300 metre long queue to take pictures at the summit of Snowdon at the weekend.

Thousands descended on Snowdonia this weekend - with many travelling from cities in the north-west of England - the epicentre of coronavirus transmission across the UK at the moment.

Welsh Three Peaks: Rugby players saved 3,000ft up Cader Idris.        It's not the first time this year that the Mountain Rescue Team have been called out to incidents that could and should have been avoided
