Artist's Description

Crib Goch is a knife-edged arête in the Snowdonia National Park in North Wales

The highest point on the arête is 923 m above sea level. A path leads over the arête and three rock-pinnacles to a grassy col at Bwlch Coch. This first part of the ridge is very exposed and serious, having resulted in several fatalities.

From the col the ridge rises again, joining the main Snowdon ridge via the sister peak Garnedd Ugain in the west.

On Saturday 13th September I achieved the summit of Snowdon for the third time. This time by the most difficult route climbing up to, and across, Crib Goch. Then climbing to the summit of Garnedd Ugain before the easy walk from there to Snowdons summit.

This is a view of Crib Goch from Bwlch Coch, just before you climb up to the summit of Garnedd Ugain.

The other side isn’t quite as sheer as this side …………. but it certainly feels like it when you’re up there.

Without a doubt the most frightening thing I’ve ever done in my life but also the most amazing.
