Trail magazine and the British Mountaineering Council present Britain's Mountain Challenges
In this video we're looking at one of the most dramatic ways up Snowdon – the knife-edge arête of Crib Goch. While only ranked as a Grade 1 scramble this extremely exposed approach to Wales' highest mountain is notoriously treacherous in wet or windy conditions, making benign conditions a must for any first-time attempt. It's best avoided in winter unless you're an experienced winter mountaineer with the relevant skills and tools at your disposal.
It's well worth the wait though, because a fine day on Crib Goch is one of the most memorable experiences you can have in the British mountains and should be on the life list of any hillwalker, scrambler or climber.
