Snowdon and Swim (Yr Wyddfa via Watkin Path)

Climb Yr Wyddfa via the Watkin Path and have a dip in the waterfalls on the way down. This isn’t the easiest route up Snowdon but may well be the best/ most scenic. Its a arduous day with 1000m of climbing and 13km of walking on steep terrain, with a swim towards the end of the day.  You’ll have a hot drink to finish a rewarding day

You’ll be joined by a Mountain Leader who is also a wild swimmer.
