Weekly Round Up – An Epic Snowdonia Weekend

18th April 2018

Week 2 of the 2018 season was pretty busy in Snowdonia. We had the pleasure of leading over 100 clients on various guided walks and courses in the stunning Snowdonia mountains. Events ranged from private group walks on Snowdon, scrambling courses, navigation and our popular Snowdon Moonlight walk.

Helvellyn in Winter

18th February 2018

Helvellyn in winter, Britain’s best mountain, is a fantastic winter challenge for the more experienced, and prepared, winter hillwalker. Helvellyn is the third highest peak in England and situated in the Eastern Fells of the Lake District sandwiched between the stunning and tranquil Ullswater and sombre Thirlemere. Helvellyn is situated in such a way that the mountain can be tackled from several starting points either side of the peak.

So you think Crib Goch is the ultimate Snowdonia scramble? Or the Snowdon Horseshoe is a challenge?  Well you may just change your mind when you attempt the Cwm Bochlwyd Horseshoe.

This route is non-stop adventure from the moment you leave the car. The route includes all the key ascents and scrambles of the Central Glyderau, including: a full north to south traverse of Tryfan, technical scrambling on Bristly Ridge and...

Which course is right for me?

09th February 2018

Which is the right hillwalking course for me? Hillwalking requires a good knowledge of skills and competence so you can enjoy the hills and mountains safely. The ability to anticipate and deal with potential problems, being prepared for all eventualities and having the confidence to make important decisions are skills every hillwalker should know. These skills are often difficult to learn and for the beginner knowing where to start can be daunting. At Mountain Walks we offer a range of skills based courses which have been carefully created to give you those important skills no matter what your level of experience.




To make things even simpler we have created 5 courses which we believe targets beginners up to intermediate hillwalkers.     Beginners.   Experience level: Complete beginner who wants to get started but not sure where. May have completed a...
