/ Llanberis pass parking spot
Does anyone know the deal with parking here in Llanberis:
Seen numerous cars parked there and wondered how legit it is. (We got told on Tuesday we couldnt park in a space because it was 'reserved' by the film crew of a road cycling race...)
There is a regular bus that serves Pen y Pass for tourists and walkers so why can't they leave the laybys in the Pass for climbers. My personal view. The only advice I can offer is definitely not to park outside of the designated areas such as on double yellow lines, that line the Pass, as the police are very strict on this. You will be booked.
Or do you mean moving a few rocks and driving through the old gateway?
Join the CC to always be guaranteed a parking spot and a cheap campsite/hut in the Pass, at Bosigran and elsewhere!
I parked in there a few Weeks ago, after seeing others parked in there too. The rocks weren't there mind.
Yeah there is no rocks in the way, just a gate with no lock. Farmers land you say...?
If you can't get a space in any of the lay byes then consider the park and ride in Nant Peris. You get a free bus ticket for one on the Sherpa bus with each parking ticket. The bus fare is only £1 in any case. You can plan your journey on Traveline Cymru if you want to do more than just head off up the pass. I live here and often use the bus to avoid parking hassles.
