Since discovering Snowdon in August 2008 I had walked all 7 of the main walking routes to it's summit. Four of them in wintry conditions. So I was now trying to walk all those routes in wintry conditions, and today's choice was the Rangers Path!
Onto crampons and onto the summit ridge. Most people I saw were using crampons and ice axe in very tricky conditions. Responding to requests from the mountain rescue teams who had so sadly dealt with a number of tragedies over the preceeding ten days.
