Snowdon has a huge appeal draw, as you approach the mountains Snowdon stands there is all its glory.  You will meet many people around Snowdon that climb the mountain all seasons, there are various routes each one challenging although some more than others! One factor to never overlook is the weather,  even in the peak of summer it will only reach around  8c at the summit so you have to allow for temperature change rain and wind can join you when you least expect it and visibility can disappear without warning.  All part of why Snowden is exhilarating and a real achievement!
