The Snowdon Horseshoe is described as possibly the best ridge walk in Wales. Its technical terrain and amazing views and its with grade one scrambles, a knife-edged arête and big drops to contend with it’s not for the faint-hearted. The Snowdon Horseshoe route is made up of a horseshoe shaped ring of ridges and peaks on Snowdon’s eastern side and makes for a brilliant mountain day.

Join a group hike with MountainXperience to tackle Crib Goch and the Snowdon Horseshoe. Book online below.

Yours day starts with an easy climb from Pen-y-Pass along the Pyg Track before heading off to tackle the exposed ridge of Crib Goch. Some will march confidently along the top whilst others will be on all fours with most managing a bit of both! The pinnacles give you a bit of easy vertical scrambling before the easy walk to Snowdon’s summit. After you’ll descend south to Y Lliwedd with its amazing views back to Crib Goch then further down into Cwm Dyli before joining the Miners’ Track back to the start.

​MountainXperience can take you and your family, small group of friends or whole organisation around the Snowdon Horseshoe at any time of the spring, summer or autumn (conditions depending). Their experienced mountain guides will chat to you in advance, discuss your needs and ensure you’ve got the right gear for an enjoyable day out.

Snowdon Experts has teamed up with local mountain guides MountainXperience to provide instant booking for this activity.
