/ no crampons in snowdonia (part 2)
I realise there is an identical post to this a bit further down but for some reason it wouldn't let me reply to that one?
I'm taking a bunch of friends to Snowdonia (penmachno to be precise) this weekend and they won't have crampons/axes. Any recommendations for what I can do with them? Saturday looks a bit of a washout but I was wondering whether the snow would've retreated enough by Sunday to get up high?
Thanks in advance
Anyway it was all melting by the end of last weekend, so I imagine you'll be able to get pretty high. Even when it was still in, some people were on top of Snowdon via the Llanberis path without any spikes. (Not necessarily wise).
Be prepared to turn back if judgement dictates it, but you're very likely to get something done imo.
You'll find something to do, i'm sure.
