Where is my ice ax?

Last weekend 34 exited random people from Birmingham and beyond drove up to Caernarfon for a weekend of fun times up in the mountains.

The car I was in made a quick stop on the way for coffee and food,  that turned in to a 3 hour shopping stop for hiking clothes. If you are in the area I really recommend stopping there for great, veggie and vegan food (and meat if you are one of those).

We stayed in the beautiful seaside town in a hostel called Totters independent backpacker. Caernarfon is only 30 minutes drive from the Snowdon itself, and I can imagine there is plenty of beautiful walks closer to the town as well.

We (well Alex) planned a 16 km long walk that would take us just past the Snowdon peak, unfortunately we couldn’t reach the peak because of snow and ice.. We would need ice axes and stuff like that to be safe, and since I wasn’t as prepared as Phil who got started climbing some Munro mountains this weekend, we stayed lower down.

I couldn’t stay away from a good climbing wall
