What a day to pick to tackle Snowdon… It was wet, blowing half a gale and bitterly cold at the summit. Very few people up here this morning and only one, a German tourist, outside the cafeteria. He kindly took the photo of me at the pillar. Visibility just a few feet. The low marks out of 10 reflect the conditions on the day.
22nd Sep 2012 13:39 by Hu8ery
My first logged trigpoint and what a day to get it. Came from pen y pass up the pyg track back down the miners track
18th Sep 2012 16:02 by Glaslyn
My ninth visit but first specifically to visit the pillar, had early start to beat the crowds and a semi clear view from the summit ...... busy as always!!
5th Sep 2012 13:00 by Walker Dan
Good views today, apart from the trigpoint that was covered in tourists. Came from Rhyd ddu and down the Ranger path.
30th Jul 2012 14:00 by trigofthedump
Never had to queue to bag a trig before. Absolutely fantastic views.
15th Jul 2012 11:30 by Father Ted
I'll give it a 10 for its significance and views and hill climbing experience but would only give the actual trig visit a 1 as it involves a lot of jostling to get up the steps and back down on a busy day. I thought summit rage was going to break out at one time. Trying to secure my photo of the flush bracket took a bit of time.

25th Sep 2011 13:30 by CURRYSCRIM
Ascended via the Watkin path and down via the southern ridge. Zero visibility and lots of people despite no trains running due to high winds. Previous ascent was in 1976.
4th Sep 2011 20:33 by gushoneybun
We walked up from Llanberis, when we arrived the mountain top was shrouded in cloud so views were not great. After sitting in the cafe we came out behind a train log of tourists who hid the trig from view so we decided not to join the queue for another photo.

I came up on the Watkin Path, with a little detour to take in Y Lliwedd first. The last 300 metres of ascent was through dense cloud. Even still, the summit was as busy as ever and it was a struggle to get a picture of the flush bracket. I don't know if I saw BLACKCATWHITEFEET when I was up there, but I did see a poor bedraggled girl dressed up as a banana. I headed down on the Llanberis path, calling by Garnedd Ugain trig pillar along the way.

23rd Oct 2010 13:30 by scafell3210
3rd visit, first with new cafe which I can live with but really do not like the steps to the summit. This time from Rhyd Ddu.
21st Oct 2010 13:05 by Phil Clayton
Above date is most recent of twenty visits, first in 1975. Round, stone built topograph. Pillar and platform rebuilt in 2000 with view indicator set into top. There was a small cairn recorded on the top in 1805 and the large cairn, on which stands the trig point, was first constructed in 1827 by the OS surveyors. New cafe is an improvement on the former one though it was too cloudy to see it, or anything else, properly today.
15th Oct 2010 12:16 by martinc
Went up the Bwlch Main path and saw not a soul until hit by the noise of a workmans angle grinder and hoards of people clamouring for a photo on the top. First visit since the new centre opened. Not as horrendous as I imagined. Pillar in good condition but no view today because of cloud.

I'm sure we were at the top of Snowdon, but there was so much cloud cover!
1st Sep 2010 10:10 by SidAndBob
I can't say the trig condition is good because there isn't a trig, just a topograph with the flush bracket mounted on it. A beautiful day, we came up early(ish) via the Pyg track and back via the Miners' track. 10 for the view, 1 for the lack of peace, train and shop.

Superb round stone-built trig with brass spider with indented lettering in centre of view-indicator, an impressive bit of wokmanship. Would easily earn 10/10 if not for that railway monstrosity,although the new building better visually than the old one. Previously visited this Furth of Scotland Munro 08/05/87 by way of Crib-goch and Crib-y-ddysgl which I repeated today with the inclusion this time of Craig Fach to complete the Welsh Sims ( Sixhundred Metre Summits ).
16th Aug 2010 17:10 by Chris9870
One of those very special days when the sky is clear and the views are amazing. Took the train up and walked back down via Garnedd Ugain. Busy at the summit even at this time.
16th Aug 2010 13:04 by jamiekeighley
Went up via Miners Track and down Pyg Track in ideal conditions. Very busy at summit. A stunning mountain. Revisitted 30.08.11 for 18th birthday.

Tried to do the horseshoe but weather to bad so went up pyg track back down miners track. pea soup at the top passed hundreds on way up
11th Aug 2010 14:56 by Sven
Usual lack of view not least for the numbers of flip-flopped visitors to the summit. 2nd ascent in 12 months - a lot warmer this time - but still cold and drizzly on an otherwise warm sunny day elsewhere. Going well descent via Rhyd Ddu path. Year's challenge in aid of Prostate Cancer Charity is going well with three good high trigs in two days.
8th Aug 2010 13:00 by SurveySoft
Walked to here 30 years to the week ago with my late father. we where lucky the cloud dropped and the views are just the best.

Walked up again this time Rhyd Ddu up and Snowdon Ranger down caught the train back to the car. Still a good walk but as we reached the summit we also losted the view.

Ascent from Nantgwynant via the Clogwyn Du ridge very snowy, very cloudy - no views. Had the trig to ourselves. Intended to return via the Watkin Path, but aborted after conditions made it impassible without crampons etc. Ended up using the Llanberis Path to leave the mountain.

WOW, what a trig. Weather not brilliant, cloudy base occurred just before going under second rail bridge, although the day before there were 70mph gusts so we were lucky. 3 hour walk up the Llanberis path, started out at 8.15am to avoid the tourists, and boy are they ill prepared tourists, this is a MOUNTAIN!!!! The whole experience makes this a 10/10 for us. Thank you to all that helped us prepare for this trip, we really did feel on top of the world together, and make this our 50th trig.
Our Spot Tracey not brave enough to stand on top, but she had done well to even get this far for someone who does not like heights.©hussyhill
26th Sep 2009 12:37 by Robin Hood
Four ascents in 3 days - all by different routes. Rhyd-Ddu (hated the narrow ridge), Pyg, Snowdon Ranger (easiest) and lastly Watkins (best route). First 3 times thick cloud at top but fourth time lucky - brilliant sunshine with a sea of cloud a few hundred feet below which gradually cleared. New cafe quite nice. Unbelievably crowded - I had to queue behind about 10 others to get to the topograph.

Went up on the ‘Pyg track’ and then came back down the ‘Miners track’. Very windy and very cold on the top with very little visibility, although started to clear up in the afternoon as we walked down! Definitely a mystical place!

Went from Llanberis as part of DoE Gold exped.. If you want to avoid the ill prepared tourists on the Llanberis track, you will have to be early. I have heard stories of people queing to get up before! Unfortunately, the weather was not as good as many other photo's show and the mist was so poor you could hardly see down the steps to just below the trig. Couldn't see the cafe very well either, but from what I saw (and heard) it was very nice. After Snowdon, we continued down the pyg track to Pen-y-pass. Nice climb but nicer weather could have made it a lot better!

Latest of many visits to Snowdon. Usual crowds. Impressed by the new cafe - I think it blends in well and a big improvement from the old.
24th May 2009 11:14 by Terry L
Round stone pillar more a tourist attraction than a trig point. Metal plug [indented letters] at centre of elaborate view finder. Public. Access Land. Snowdonia National Park. New summit complex not quite open. New steps provide easier & safer access to pillar, but have an 'approach to the shrine' feel. Still, highest place in the British Isles outside Scotland, with a feeling of immense loftiness. As an alternative to the usual routes, try an ascent of the south ridge from Rhyd Ddu.

Did this as part of our 3 Peaks Challenge - Scafell in March, Nevis in May, and now Snowdon! Sorry? Oh, they have to be done in the same day! I thought it was in the same year, d*mn - back to the drawing board! Oh well, at least it was a glorious day and the final day of our hols, long drive home in the evening though. We did the classic horeshoe walk up from Pen-y-Pass, over Crib Goch, Snowdon summit and return via Y Lliwed, one of the best circular walks we've done, but the weather made it. Top of Snowdon was awful, a train station, a half-built cafe and all those people! Uggh.

Turned out I was the only person at the summit when I arrived, which must be unusual for 10am on a Saturday. Thick cloud covered everything so visibility down to about 10m. Trig point is a masterpiece and one of the best I have seen.

An early start saw us taking the Pyg path to the summit from car park at Pen-y-pass. Although only cloudy on the way up it was a howling gale by the time we reached the railway track with little visibility. Hung on for dear life to the stone built circular trig point. First five figure number I have recorded. Was this trig point a much later addition as a replacement and renumbered? I am quite new to this logging trig points and have caught the bug so I may be proved to be hopelessly wrong in my surmising.(I dont look for any information on a trig until I have loggged it myself it takes away a lot of the excitement.)

I suppose it's only fitting that our first 'recorded' trig in Wales is Snowdon. We came up the Miners Track and back down to Llanberis. Perfect weather and excellent 360 degree views. A tad more crowded up here than we're used to.

We came up via the Miners Path to find lots of people milling around the summit/building site, managed to spend a little while at the Trig Point without getting pushed off but definitely the busiest mountain we've been up! Went back down via the Llanberis path which we thought was nowhere near as interesting.

beautiful walk up the snowdon ranger path, just me and the lad all the way till you pass the railway line and join the other paths, all of a sudden the world and is mother is at the trigpoint on the top. great views but to many people,cafe and railway station gone at the moment whilst work is carried out.

can't believe this- father ted's in anglesey, and saginanvalis's on top of snowdon at the same time as me- i trust it wasn't you either 'on a course' or on the phone "hi it's me, guess where i am, yeah on top of snowdon" or both 'on a course' AND on the phone, by the way i was the one in all black & 6'4" with goatee. i think we all need RHB branded on our foreheads...i came up the watkin path via y llewydd and then later onto yr aran - a killer 800' scorpion's sting marilyn in the tail of another snowdon horseshoe. rime over the last 100' of snowdon, the only trig of the weekend, and it's a pretend one...

Very small circular stonebuilt pillar, FB set halfway up facing the cafe; toposcope on top with central spider and metal cap (shallow letters) apparently all of polished brass. Low cloud and cold wind but still busy on top. 2nd of 2 days with the Mercia FR crew. Retrospective hello to stonestreaker - we were the fellrunners - underdressed and in a hurry ;-)

Cloudy as usual on the top (12 trips, only 3 with a view from the top!). Location recorded with Etrex Summit with WAAS/EGNOS enabled, quoted accuracy 4m (around 8 satellites fixed.)

Far too busy for my liking, over 100 folks around summit and more in the cafe. Lets hope no other UK mountains get a cafe or train service!

Beautiful Day for the climb (via Pyg Track)

Third on our Three Peaks Challenge. A lovely walk up from Pen y Pass, but sadly the summit was shrouded in mist once again. And too many day trippers who cheated by using the railway ;) Touched the trig point, noted the flush bracket number and legged it back to complete the Challenge in the nick of time!

Snowdon peak reached from Rhydd Dhu via the south ridge, which unlike the summit was very quiet. Beautifully (re)contructed pillar with great views as the weather was superb. Trig height on the OS didn't agree with that on my Garmin Legend, but location spot on.

Retrospectively added for our visit during the 3 Peaks. Went up via the Pyg Track and down via the Miners Path. Last peak of the 3, the weather for all the peaks was miserable, although the clouds did break slightly on the journey down. At least we could get to the trig point without queuing!!
Finally made the Final Summit of the 3 Peaks - Snowdon Last summit of the 3 peaks, the weather is typical of what we were up against throughout the challenge.©Flacky

After a wet start to the day and a 1 hour wait to park at Pen-Y-Pass. We started up the Pyg track, as we started off the sky started to clear. At the top the Views were amazing with Moel Fammu and Holyhead Mountain visible.

Had to be a 10 as it was the first time i've been up with no clouds in sight!

Second visit - geocachers were comparing coords, muggles saying "Hello Mum - guess where I am" to their mobiles!
18th Sep 2004 11:50 by Cave Troll and Eeyore
Found whilst attending the Snowdon Easy or Hard cache event along with approx 28 other cachers! The cloud base was low today so the views were poor at the summit , but on clear days views are spectacular.
18th Sep 2004 11:38 by Deego
Walked up from pen-y-pass for the event cache. rained hard on the way up and heavy clouds on the sumit so no views today. nice walk back and the sun even came out

Well worth the climb up in the pouring rain, the clouds cleared before we went back down again, giving us some breathtaking views.

Finishing the 3 peaks challenge committed us to walking up in very bad weather in the dark. I had been up before and new exactly where we were going, the others secretly rang mountain rescue, who told us to walk down the railway track. Which was where I was planning on walking anyway.

Fabulous day! Has to be 10/10. Had to wait 30mins to get a picture free from tourists!

latest trip to summit first visited in the early 80's climbed via Yr Aran and had planned to continue on southern half of horseshoe but late snow and no crampons meant discression over valour on the top of the Watkin
25th Feb 2004 20:59 by stonestreaker
old log. tons of ascents before trigging took over my life!
24th Oct 2003 09:50 by krussti
Heavy snow and very windy at the top
Train at the mountain railway station The train was not running to the summit that day due to the weather.

Very clean and polished plate with toposcope attached. Cool,and breezy but a good view.

having got to the top, i promptly nearly fell off due to the overly strong winds!!! needless to say it was freezing cold but worth it for the stunning view - a must see

Unreachable by the thousands of people all fighting to touch it

Well worth the 2.5 hours to walk up the views are amazing although the trig is surrounded by people. this has to be the most visited trig in the UK

Very fleeting visit as the high point of the International Snowdon Race. Its a busy place today with train loads of tourists plus 354 fell runners. Can't stop, must get down to the finish at Llanberis.

Good climb up but very cloudy at summit so no view today
22nd May 2003 12:10 by Crwydryn
Pillar has been rebuilt as a direction indicator incorporating OS metalwork. I have it on good authority that this trig did not form part of the triangulation, but was built because people kept asking why there was no T.P. on the highest mountain in Wales1
5th Apr 2003 10:34 by discjirm
This would certainly have been a higher score if the weather had been clear. I walked up the Snowdon Ranger path in two hours, whilst Sam caught the train to the halfway station and walked hte rest of the way up. The first of the three country tops on my walk around the coast of Britain.
4th Feb 2003 12:38 by mat_j

14th Jul 2000 11:30 by The Flying Boots
Have walked up here many times but decided to log this particular date as it was done as the last of the 3 Peaks that we did over the period of a week. Very foggy this day. We'd wanted to do the Crib Goch ciruit but due to no view we didn't. Have done it since though and wonderful it is.
13th Nov 1999 12:00 by barryhunter
I am only loggin this Mar'04 so cant remember much about the visit, but it was clear. Also visited: (wont log them seperatly to avoid making the page too long) 21/4/2000 - 12/02/2002 - 23/02/2004
10th Aug 1999 14:00 by gary&den
The highest point for us so far (uk) Lovely views all round. Well worth the hard climb. Walked up the day before the eclipse. Amy 7 Craig 10 done well to get to the top.

Been coming to Wales for some many years and fginally got up here! A great walk, but awful visibility on the top - I think it would have felt wrong if it had been clear. Arrived with Lou, Ian, and Jo.
This is as focused as was possible in the weather At last I finally summit on Snowdon. Weather suitabley poor. I wonder what views are like from here. Ian, Jo, Lou and I not exactly looking our best!
19th Jul 1997 12:00 by peregrinus
would be a 10 but for the café & crowds - many visits 1980s onwards, e.g. 19/7/97 during Paddy Buckley Round, full moon, almost too warm even at 10pm
30th Jun 1997 00:00 by PhilPamAndRob
The date is very arbitrary as I've been up Snowdown sevarla times. First (and easiest) ascent was about 1972 by train - I was only 11. Since then I've been up via the Miners Track & PYG track more than once, but the most exhilarating must be via Crib Goch. On one occaision this was extended to do the horseshoe over Llewedd. Will try and come up with exact date(s)
28th Jun 1997 23:54 by Triggers
Done several times, though this visit was as part of 3 peaks in 24 hours
21st Jun 1997 00:55 by pieces_of_8
3rd and Final peak of the 3 Peaks Challenge! Weather BAD strong winds, raining, 0 visability...standard for Snowdon then. Whole challenge completed in 21Hrs 14min 56sec. Total ascent 10010ft

Waking up after a bivi on the (old) summit station patio, at the start of a midsummer crossing of the Welsh 3000s. A training walk for a 5 -week trip to the Himalayas later in the summer.

We touched the pillar to begin our 14 peaks challenge. A boiling hot day with millions of flies at the summit- we were only too glad to leave!

I think this was my 14th time up here, but this one was special with Mum (63!) and her grand-daughter (8!) in tow. Ascent up Rhyd-Ddu path, with mist blocking spectacular views after 650m. Lunch on top amidst crowds of trainbound grockles clustering around the trig, some in flip-flops!
26th Jun 1996 14:56 by Crazy
The high point of the Cambrian Way. The last vestiges of mist clear to a sunny day but you're not on your own up here. Certainly better than my last visit as a scout when my brother was nearly blown off the mountain.
6th Nov 1995 03:00 by swampysean
Awesome, cloud just below ridge line, night time to see dawn from the summit - Back to Pete's Eats for breakfast

Thick snow, wind and lots of grey cloud. Walked up Llanberis Path as part of a group of 20 (college "activity" weekend) 18 wanted to stop and have lunch in leeward side of cafe while 2 of us headed straight to the top. Weather closed in as we went for lunch so everyone else missed the view.
2nd Jul 1994 00:00 by mickandshane

Up Pyg Track (down Miners Track) in horrid mist and rain. Subsequently been up on the railway (down Watkin Path)in 1995ish and climbed as final part of Three Peaks challenge by Miners Track (down Pyg) in May 2002.
15th Sep 1992 13:19 by fasgadh
Nicely placed, right by a railway station, and no nettles nor barbed wire. Stone built. There is some speculation that the survey pillar is the one over on Carnedd Ugain, and this one was built to answer expectations of a trig pillar.

I was part of a 1991 Events Team and we were raising sponsorship money for the Action & Research for Multiple Sclerosis charity. We were a team of ten carrying a colleague up to the summit on a kind of sedan chair(8 carrying & 2 resting in 20 minute relays). I remember we reached the summit in just under three hours, and all crowded round the trigpoint pillar in a collapsed heap. I've been up again since that memorable day, but it was never quite as good as that first time....

On holiday as a bairn. Fantastically hot day, burnt to a crisp, but a memory which lingers. Took me eighteen years to return.
31st Jul 1981 13:00 by Stratford Strollers
Logged retrospectively from 2010. Visited this trig by the Crib Goch route. Without doubt my bravest adventure in the mountains at that time. Summit very crowded with a stong smell of urine from the poor quality loos. What a travesty to inflict on the highest mountain in Wales. Still the views were fantastic and I hear the new visitor centre is much better.
1st Jun 1974 12:00 by peregrinus
Non visit note: Alan Duval has a photo from a 1974 visit (date not stated). "The trig point was a standard, square cross-section one, but appears to be on a stone built platform, about 60-80 cm in height." Was plastered in snow, so unsure whether stone or concrete.
5th Apr 1971 12:15 by vegibagger

1st ascent up Watkin path. Quite a stuggle as I'm only four weeks out of a spell of nine weeks in hospital after a belly ful of shotgun pellets on 28th Feb. Legs still not back to fitness but very light, about 10 stone after loosing nearly three stone in hospital. But delighted to be alive to get here!!
15th Aug 1967 15:00 by desperate dan
My first trig point that I remember. I was only 7 at the time (I did walk up) so I'm guessing the precise date and time. I remember standing on the very top and then crying on the way down because I was so tired. I have been back a couple of time since but the first time is always the best!
