I walked up it with CUSAGC in the snow one winter, but I can no longer remember which path we used.

I think 7 years ago you told me it was up the Pig and down the Miners, BICBW

I went up for the first (and so far only) time on a beautiful sunny day in May 2007. Crib Goch was the first ridge walk I ever did and I was so proud of myself for doing it.

I've been a short way up Snowdon, but never to the top, or even half-way. I couldn't say any more detail than that.

I may have been up Snowdon by train as a child - I'd have to ask my mum though and it would be a long time ago, I certainly don't remember it.

Technically our route down was only *partly* by Snowdon Ranger - we took a left before that reaches the road for an alternative route to Rhyd Dhu which takes in the quarry tips. It was a bit boggy in places but rather good fun. And then we stopped for a pint in the pub before getting the bus back to the Pen-y-Pass carpark (and then another bus back to Betws-y-Coed).

First time I walked up and down (at age 15), second time (with infirm parent) I used the train.

I see from the comments that `Pig' is not, in fact, ridden.

It's often spelled "Pyg" too.

I went up Snowdon several times as a child but forget the actual number; always by the easiest walking track (Which I think Llanberis) in both directions (boooooring). I may have been carried up it in the baby-carrying rucksack but I'm not sure.

I'd quite like to try the other routes at some point in my life. Also I'd like to try the Snowdon Race; but I think it is probably rather beyond me.

You omit "on a bicycle" and "jumping off".

And 'by stretcher', 'by sedan chair', 'snowboarding', 'up Cloggy' and many many other options...

[I don't think you're allowed to take a bicycle up, are you?]

You've forgotten 'car' as a way up as per recent news story, too!

[Was your route up Y Lliwedd one of the climbs? Enquiring minds want to know!]

I really can't remember - I've been up it several times by several different routes, but I'm not sure how many or which.

The snowdon horseshoe is traditionally up crib goch and then down y lliwedd (although I'm sure if you walked up y lliwedd and down crib goch that would still count as walking the horseshoe :-) )

Suffice to say I've been up it under my own steam, although deprived of the view from the peak. I don't know and don't care which path it was. I prefer a. riding and b. lakes, so wouldn't waste another day on it :D

Oh, I think I've stood at the foot of Snowdon but not much further. I was more interested in the contents of the opposite mountain.

I *think* I went up Pig and down Miners. The plan had been to walk up and get the train down, since I had never climbed/walked a mountain ever before. We got to the top, found out the train was off that day due to bad weather, and I think I actually had a little cry!
