Ascent Trip ReportNot one of my favorite hikes, but still a nice day out. Be warned about doing this one on the weekend, it is CROWDED. We had to park a couple miles down the road because the parking was full. If you want parking at Pen y Pass you need to arrive early. Or take the bus from Llanberis. It was cloudy, then rained. Very strong winds, 40 mph at Pen y Pass. We were going to go via Crib Goch but thought the better of it. It was extremely crowded and the people were ill-prepared and had no idea what they were doing. Passing a person was difficult--people walked 3 across holding hands! Right of way for people going up was nonexistent. It was a nice walk, but extremely busy which really made it less fun. Made it up in about 2 hours from the car and down in 2.
