station built inside a mountain. It only takes 12 seconds to
turn it on.
Thursday was the day that we climbed Snowdon.
We all set off at 9.00am, all buzzing. At one point the weather
was so bad thast it didn't look like we were going to make it

you could go into a Victorian pub and a sweet shop and it was

On the Summit
On our way
up the Pyg Track
When we reached the summit nearly everybody phoned home.
In the evening after tea we all went swimming and most of us
jumped off the diving boards. There were 3 different heights
to choose from.
After swimming we went back to the youth hostel.

were first served at the summit of Snowdon by an enterprising
miner called Morris Williams in 1838.
We had to carry our own food up and we bought toys from the shop
instead of refreshments.
Some people think that in good weather Snowdon is not that dangerous
and that they don't need lots of fancy outdoor gear. Is this true?
Settled weather is rare and cannot be relied upon. So it makes
sense to be prepared for a change. Many people have got into difficulties
through lack of basic clothing and equipment.
When we walked up Snowdon the weather was boiling, we were wearing
T-shirts and we couldn't stop drinking water. When we were walking
down though there were hail stones the size of marbles. After
that there wasloads of rain which got us soaked. It was a good
job that we has the right gear.
