How long will it take?
How long is a piece of string?! Allow 3-4 hours if in any doubt, and that’s just for the ascent. If you’re fitter, then you should be able to make it up and down in that time.
Will the cafe be open?
Generally it’s only open when the train is travelling to the Summit Station. If in doubt, contact the Mountain Railway company. Never plan your walk relying on the cafe to be open!
Can I walk all the way to the top?
Yep – there’s no climbing involved on any of the walking routes. Some scrambling is needed for Crib Goch, Lliwedd and y Gribin.
How much does it cost to stay at the hotel?
About three and six in old money the last time it was open… Seriously, there’s no accommodation on the top!
Do you arrange mortgages to pay for the parking in Pen y Pass?
No. I really wouldn’t want to be responsible for handling such money. I’d rather sort out Greece’s financial deficit.
Are you running out of questions and putting silly ones in now?
