This site has grown from the Walk Eryri website and the author’s desire to write a guidebook about the Snowdonia Mountains. Having heard there’s not really much money in writing guidebooks, he decided to put it on the internet instead and take his chances with that!
Dave Roberts has been up Snowdon countless times and guided people up for a few seasons before retiring as he found he prefers to walk up without having to be responsible for others.
Walk Eryri is a part of the Mud and Routes family of outdoor websites including:
Mud and Routes – An independent, non-corporate, outdoor’s website that covers anything that involves getting muddy (bar mud wrestling. though send in some pics and we’ll reconsider). Mainly walking, mountain biking and trail running. We review outdoor tech, food and any gear that looks particularly interesting. Oh, and we do love a challenge! One aim of Mud and Routes is to provide a platform for independent websites and bloggers, so if you’ve got a similar site to Walk Eryri please contact us. We can also feature your site on Mud and Routes with a short bio (of yourself or the site) and a few choice links to your favourite walks from your site.
If you want to promote a walk you’ve put on line, let us know. We can help drive traffic to your site, be it personal page, community, public body or business.
Walk up Snowdon– The online guidebook for Snowdon.
Eryri Way – The official site for Snowdonia’s unofficial long distance footpath. This is the underachiever of the family, having so much promise yet having delivered so little. Again, a revamp is on the books!
Walk the Three Peaks – This site is under development and will include detailed microsites on Scafell Pike and The Ben in the same vein as Walk up Snowdon. The aim of the site will be to showcase the challenge and how you may be able to complete the challenge sensibly and with as little impact as possible. Of course, we’re talking any walk that’s called 3 peaks challenge from the National to the Yorkshire. There’s even the 15 peaks on there as anyone who’s read our 5 things can attest, we refuse to count accurately.
Disclaimer – note that any routes provided are for information only and at the user’s own risk and we take no responsibility for any damage, injury or worse that you may inflict upon yourselves! It’s a sad state of affairs that we’ve got to add a disclaimer, but we all know that the entry list for the Darwin Awards is growing annually, and for those who don’t make it there’s always no win no fee.
