It was a beautiful Spring Sunrise this morning and Snowdon looked lovely with the sunlight highlighting the spring colours. The Snowdon Horseshoe consisting of Crib Goch, Crib y Ddysgyl, Yr Wyddfa and Y Lliwedd is one of, if not the best ridge walk in Wales and it is seen here from the banks of the smaller of the two lakes forming Llynnau Mymbyr. Although there is not so much height gain the terrain is highly interesting. The route should not be attempted by anyone with a fear of heights, since it includes the knife-edge arête of Crib Goch, and for the same reason it should be avoided in high winds, and also in winter unless you are properly equipped and experienced. There is also a walk down a steep scree slope on the South East side of Snowdon.
