About Us

Ross and Kate Climb Snowdon. Summer, winter, mornings, evenings, busy days, quiet days and by many different summit routes.

We are highly experienced Mountain Leaders, with a wealth of personal and professional walking days behind us – all over the UK, and beyond. But our passion for living and working underneath Snowdon’s shadow underpins everything we do.

We have now worked with 1000s of people – from all walks of life – who are keen to enjoy walking on Yr Wyddfa.

Our experience and enthusiasm for helping people enjoy happy and safe days in the mountains is key to what we do, as is our depth of experience of working with a great many client groups, in all sorts of weather, for a number of years.

Ultimately, our goal is to help others access this most majestic of mountains. If we can help develop a sense of wonder and intrigue about Yr Wyddfa, the mountain, and you go home wanting to come back again, to stand on another Snowdonia summit, then we have achieved this goal.

Our responsibility for increasing your safety, supporting considered decision making and helping you develop confidence in an unfamiliar environment is always paramount. We also love to engage, to advise, to educate and to inspire.

Our Responsibilities

Climb Snowdon are proud supporters of Rhodd Eryri / Snowdonia Giving – an initiative to enable local businesses and visitors to Snowdonia donate towards community and conservation projects that will help protect and conserve Snowdon for generations to come.

Find out more about the project and see how you can help us help Snowdon and its unique environment and communities.

We have already committed to donating £1 per Climb Snowdon booking to the Snowdonia Society over many years, which has been used to help fund volunteer path maintenance days and litter picks, many of which we have volunteered on too, in person! It’s good to give something back to the mountain that gives us so much.

  • We aim to improve your safety by offering advice, guided ascents, route and weather information, discussing timings and logistics and general planning

We are here to support your Climb Snowdon day and help you achieve your goal safely and enjoyably. But in order to help us help you, please arrive prepared and ready for a full day’s walk in the mountains.

Snowdon does not offer casual walking on smooth, undulating terrain or country park style paths. Snowdon is 1085 metres above sea level and has some steep and rocky sections and paths, it’s an exciting mountainous environment! That’s why so many love it so!

Yr Wyddfa is beautiful and dramatic. There are times where you may need to use your hands to steady yourself on certain paths and even the Llanberis Path (the tourist path) is notoriously steep in a couple of sections.

The mountain is rocky underfoot and will challenge your thighs, calves, feet, ankles, back, breathing and brain at times! But, that’s why you’re here, isn’t it?!

Please bear this in mind when preparing for your walk and think about the following:

  • PLEASE follow the Kit List and bring ALL items listed with you
  • Always ask us any questions you need - that’s why we’re here!
  • Practice walking on steeper ground up AND down - find your local hill or make some visits to areas at weekends
  • Use a running machine or stepper on a steep incline or resistance
  • Plan in longer walks at the weekend - with your backpack on
  • Cover longer distances when on flatter ground - to build up stamina
  • Practice using trekking poles (at least once) before your Climb Snowdon day
  • Always take the stairs and climb up and down them as much as you can!
  • Carry on building upon your cardiovascular fitness (swimming, walking, running, cycling) as well as building tummy strength to support your back
  • Focus on developing muscle tone and strength in your thighs, bum and back to help support your knees and avoid injury...and STRETCH these muscles regularly
  • SEEK ADVICE from a qualified professional before embarking upon a new exercise regime
