After many years of visiting Snowdonia, we finally made it up the mountain.
Not going to describe the route, as there are many on-line resources that would do a much better job than I.
However, the three of us (Mark, Miriam & Steven) all climbed the mountain on the Rhyd Ddu path, and descended on the Snowdon Ranger, until picking up a footpath across the lower slopes of the hill through an old abandoned slate mine to return to the car park.
We had hoped to reach the summit in clear air, and indeed as we climbed the cloud base was lifting above us, but sadly the summit never cleared.
