Find your adventure Individual Adventures UK adventures Crib Goch private event – date TBC -1165 days -22 hours -26 mins -25 secs Take on one of the UK's most famous scrambles with an experienced leader. This is by far the most exhilarating route to the summit of Snowdon, the highest peak in Wales. Crib Goch, the ‘red ridge’, is known as one of the finest ridge walks in the UK and is one of Britain’s most popular scrambles, and for good reason. As a grade one scramble it is a great route for experienced walkers who may be looking to test themselves. A mile-long narrow ridge stretching out from the north-east flank of Snowdon, this knife-edged rocky traverse offers exciting exposure and stunning views over the whole of north Wales and up to the highest point in Wales! Once you've booked, you’ll be sent joining instructions, a training plan and kit list. We can also provide advice on local accommodation and other activities.

Route Map & Altitude Profile View Route in OS Maps Is it suitable for me? Crib Goch is a Grade 1 scramble and requires a good level of fitness and a head for heights. Weather & terrain The classic traverse of Crib Goch from East to West leads up from the Pyg track to a ‘bad step’, where hands and feet are both needed briefly. It is followed by ascent to the arête, before tackling three rock-pinnacles to a grassy col at Bwlch Coch. This first part of the ridge is exposed with precipices below.
