This is one place I feel I have to write a few lines about this evening, as I've just been working on a scene in the book whereby some of the characters travel nearby to Snowdon and catch sight of this ridge. For those of you who don't know it, this is the magnificient arete of 'Crib Goch', on the eastern side of the Snowdon horseshoe. Its about 923 metres above sea level at its highest point and like a knife edge when walking on top. I've been up there once – and I don't know which was worse, climbing up the steep coll to get up on top of it or actually being on top! Well, either way I was scared as hell! At the same time, it was great – I may try it again.
It was a real pleasure being able to include it in passing in my work. It's definitely one of the highlights of what is a superb area. If anybody reading this blog has any experiences of having been up this ridge which they would like to share them with me, I'd be very keen to hear them. If you haven't been there and would be interested in finding out more, check out the Wiki link below.
