In 2012 we went off piste and headed off to Snowdonia for a rather wild and rather unlucky trip to the Welsh mountains. Despite Rowan’s fall the rest of us managed a few lovely walks with one very memorable snowy day that tested a few of us further than we are used to! I’m not sure my dad will ever get over the icy vertical descent (it was only 10 foot or so) that we had to do to get down! I think we all have a greater respect for Snowdonia and are looking forward to returning to mountains we know very well. The hut was very nice and I imagine an amazing spot in the summer for a base to do some great walking.
