WARNING! ALL PERSONS IN THE HARD WAY GROUP ("High Striders"), TRAVEL ON SNOWDON AT THEIR OWN RISK! I'm sorry about having to add this, but I have had several emails about the liability issue regarding any accidents.
Have a look at Kit List, found by the "High Striders" coordinator.
As there has been interest about camping in the location a coordinator will hopefully be found for this group.
Currently a search is going on for a establishment, to allow both groups to rendezvous at, after the return journeys of both groups.
The Easy group option is suitable for those with restricted abilities, as there is suitable facility's at the summit. Would anyone who is attending who is restricted to a wheelchair, please inform me by August 1st, as SMR, has suitable carriage's for wheelchair users, but will need advanced notice to make sure that the carriage is available for the time we have booked.
