A little bit of a last moment thing, Sami had been asking to traverse Crib Goch so we travelled down to Snowdonia. We left on Friday night running a bit late we arrived about 11:30 and camped out in the Pen-Y-Fan car park, our route was to be: Penn-Y-Fan to Crib Goch to Snowdon - Pyg Track - Pen-Y-Fan.
Sami had never climbed a mountain let alone a traverse a ridge like Crib Goch, he was really excited and to be honest although I have climbed Crib Goch so many times I have forgotton exactly how many, his enthusiasm was infectious.

|Porride for breakfast and one of Sami's special teas|
|To celebrate I bought Sami his first Kendal's Mint Cake!|
|Starting Out around 6:15|
The peak in the distance is the start of Crib Goch, the weather was warm but you could see high up was not so good, Crib Goch was covered in fog. We traveled along the Pyg Track and took the right turn over the stile for the path that leads to the ascent up to Crib Goch.

|It looks easy, but when theres big drops involved you don't |
|Time for a breather|
|Hmm Foggy again|
|Almost off Crib Goch|

I had told Sami about the Cafe at the top of Snowdon and the railway, I don't think he quite believed me and assumed I was telling him tales just to bribe hi to the top!

It was a tiring journey home, we pulled over and had to sleep in the car for an hour because we were both too tired to drive, we had both only got 3.4 to 4 hrs sleep on Friday night and I am sure that Sami got home and slept like a log as I did!
