Snowdon (1085m), Wales & Scafell Pike (978m), England
This is what I call a fulfilled weekend: Friday afternoon we (Zigeiner, Barbara & Reka) take the ferryÂ from Dublin to Holyhead (2h / 38â‚¬ p.p. / one way),Â rentÂ a car, drive 70 km to theÂ Gallt y Glyn, have a couple of good-night pints and an awesome pizza, get up at 5 am early next morning to hike Wale’s highest peak “Snowdon” (Pyg Track Route up as it is too windy forÂ Crib Gosh,Â Miner’s Track down, 4h total) in downpour, change into dry clothes and drive 360 km all the way to the Lake District (Wasdale Head InnÂ pub:) where we call it a day with a stale ale.
Early Sunday morning we’re back on the trek at 5:30 am sharp, this time to conquer England’s highest peak “Scafell Pike” (Wesdale Route up (south) viaÂ Mickledore, down (north) along the end of Corridor Route, 4h total), jump back into the car and speed back 380 km to Holyhead from where we catch the ferry just in time for our 5 pm return to Dublin.
