Hey,

Does anyone have a scan/pdf/image of all the Snowdon routes, the most common/touristy paths being of most interest. The more detail on the map the better.

Any help much appreciated :)

In reply to purplemonkeyelephant: you need the Ordnance Survey map OL 17 that has all the routes on it!

This covers the Pyg and the Miners on an OS map (though be warned it also refers to 'Mount Snowdon):

Yes, but the southern 'branch' of the Pyg track (past 'The Horns') marked there - same as OS map - is v out of date and now virtually non-existent and includes some nasty terrain. Take northern one. Well marked in diagram Mike Peacock has posted.

In reply to Gordon Stainforth: Indeed. If going that way then taking the ridge along The Horns (Craig Fach) is well worth doing. Always quiet, but fantastically undulating with fine views.

That's a lovely section.. I've never seen even any remnants of the other branch of the pyg.. but the horns provides a pretty unique view point of the pass and as you say I don#t think I've ever met anyone up there.. We do it as a short 5 k.. out on the miners, climb to bwlch y moch and back along the horns.
