    Dangers of climbing Mount Snowdon

    Mount Snowdon is Wales’ highest mountain and a popular tourist destination. Often underestimated, there are many dangers of climbing Mount Snowdon. Sadly this means Mount Snowdon is the scene of many accidents leading to personal injuries of varying severity.

    Dangers of climbing Mount Snowdon

    Visited by thousands of tourists every year, Mount Snowdon offers a selection of climbing routes at varying levels of difficulty. Accidental injuries are typically caused by climbers underestimating the dangers of climbing Mount Snowdon, which include:

    • Steep gradients and cliffs
    • Rocky paths with steep inclines
    • Loose scree and steep slopes
    • Sudden weather swings

    Many slips, trip or fall injuries are caused by tourists taking the wrong path down and getting into trouble because they are not experienced enough or adequately prepared to make their way down safely.

    Preventing injuries

    Whether you intend to take one of the ‘easier’ routes to climb Mount Snowdon or hope to reach the summit via one of the more difficult routes, it is highly recommended to prevent climbing accidents by:

    • Wearing appropriate clothing (weather proof, moisture-wicking)
    • Wearing sturdy, comfortable walking/climbing boots with good grip
    • Checking weather forecasts before setting off

    Carrying a survival kit is also recommended. Survival kits should include:

    Open Claim Calculator

    • A map and compass
    • High-calorie snacks and water
    • First aid kit, torch and a whistle
    • Extra jumper, fleece or insulated jacket
    • Gloves and a hat (temperatures can drop significantly at the top even in summer)
    • Some form of lightweight emergency shelter (tent)

    Sometimes, even the most experienced, prepared climbers can fall victim to accidents on Mount Snowdon. Such accidents could be caused by failing equipment or other climbers acting irresponsibly, for example.
