After leaving the school car park on Friday afternoon the 7th of September spirits were high even if a little anxious about the task ahead. After around 4 hours we arrived at The Swallow Falls Hotel. At 22:00 exactly we started our walk!
We arrived at the base of Snowdon at 22:00 exactly we jumped straight out of the van and began our ascent. Our early pace was excellent, and we completed the first 3 miles in just over an hour. As the path became less clear, Captain Brown led the way through the rocky terrain. After 2 hours and 20 minutes, we had reached the summit, the views were stunning.
With spirits high we began our descent, after an hour or so, we realised we were higher than we should have been. A combination of over excitement and dark misty conditions, we followed a different path. It was agreed that this was definitely NOT Mr Dziombak's fault! The path was unfamiliar and we arrived back at the bus slightly behind schedule at 03:05.
