Ridges of SnowdoniaRidges of Snowdonia (A Cicerone Guide) Walk Snowdonia. Once described as "the only purely philosophical guide to hillwalking", Steve Ashton's Ridges of Snowdonia is a unique combination of route description and exploration of the hillwalking experience that has stood the test of time. With 12 main ridge descriptions, with many variants, as well as the 14-peak Snowdon traverse, this guide illuminates some of the finest walking in the region. With routes over the Carneddau, Glyders, Snowdon group, Moelwyns, Nantlle, Rhinogs, Arans, and Cader Idris, this is a comprehensive guide to Snowdonia's big and challenging walking routes. Updated and re-laid, the second edition continues with the traditions of the first: clear description, route profiles, maps and the famous discussion that is the book's hallmark.

Hillwalking in SnowdoniaHillwalking in Snowdonia (Cicerone British Mountains S.) Walk Snowdonia. The routes in this guide have been selected from four areas: Carneddau, Glyders, Snowdon and Outlying Areas, comprising Moelwyns, Eifionydd, Rhinogs, Cader Idris, Arans and Arenigs, each of which has its own peculiar charm. The areas also vary in terms of popularity. Snowdon attracts a lot of first-time visitors and is in constant use during holiday and weekend periods, while venturing into the lower and less rugged mountains outside the three main areas will mean meeting only a handful of people.

Scrambles in Snowdonia (A Cicerone Guide) Walk Snowdonia. All the described routes lie within the northern half of the Snowdonia National Park, where the most rugged mountains are found. Good scrambling in the southern half is scarce, the rock here being typically loose or vegetated. Northern Snowdonia naturally divides into four regions. From north to south these are the Carneddau, the Glyders, the Snowdon group and Eifionydd. The best scrambles will be found in the Glyders, with the large majority concentrated on Tryfan, Glyder Fach and Glyder Fawr. The Snowdon group also boasts of many excellent routes, whereas the Carneddau and the Eifionydd regions provide only a handful. The choice of routes is, by necessity and design, a selective one. All the best scrambles are included, though for the sake of a broader coverage some mediocre ones in the Glyders and Snowdon group have been omitted in favour of even poorer ones in the Carneddau and Eifionydd. This guide contains over sixty routes, and the range of difficulty extends from scrambly walks to the boundaries of proper rock climbing. Average fitness and a head for heights will suffice at one end of the scale, whereas nothing short of mountaineer's skill and daring will do at the other. Some routes fit neither category: scrambling over loose rock and up dripping, vegetated gullies seems to require a special cunning, for which neither hill walking nor rock climbing provides adequate preparation.
