A chance to climb Mount Snowdon


Ed Carlisle has been in touch with news of a trip for people from South Leeds to North Wales to …


Saturday 22nd June 2013

A fun and challenging day out. Share it with friends or family. Meet new people. Enjoy beautiful countryside. And burn some calories!

£5 per person.

At 1,000+ metres above sea level, Mount Snowdon is the biggest mountain in Wales. (And bigger than anything in England!) It’s beautiful, majestic – and easy to climb in a day. 10,000s of regular people climb it every year.

Quotes from a south Leeds youth group who climbed Snowdon together:

“One of the best things I’ve achieved in my life.” Becka

“A fun and inspiring experience, although I wished I’d worn suncream!” Sam

“Difficult, but you really feel like you’ve achieved something.” Amber

INFO We’ll leave Leeds (with pick-ups in Hunslet and Beeston Hill) by coach at around 7am, and arrive mid morning at Snowdon. We’ll walk up the mountain – and down again! – in groups (big or small), between 11am and 6pm, then return to south Leeds by 10pm.

Note that this will be hiking/walking – not rock climbing! If need be, there’s a train people can take down from the mountain top. Guides and First Aiders will be available if required.

WHO’S THIS FOR? Anyone with reasonable fitness and a good pair of shoes! You don’t need to be superman or superwoman… Children are welcome, although under 18s need to be accompanied by a responsible adult (family member, carer, or youth-worker)… Anyone living in LS10 or LS11 can apply, and we hope to take everyone who wants to. However, please note that numbers are limited, and priority will be given to residents of Hunslet and Beeston Hill (due to the funding)… Finally, discounts are potentially available (especially for families) if you really can’t afford £5.

THANKS to Community First (City + Hunslet) for their part-funding of this trip. Coordinated by the Salvation Army South Leeds Initiative, in association with the Kashmir Muslim Welfare Association, Beeston Space youth groups, Aspiring Communities, and the Hunslet Initiative.

    I would be very interested in walking up Snowden and would like to come if there are any places left.
