Man takes on Snowdon each week for charity
Bookmark and Share
A man from north Wales is to climb Snowdon every week in aid of the Breast Cancer Campaign.

Fireman Andrew Craig from Caernarfon is planning to climb the highest peak in Wales 52 times in 2010 for the charity, a feat that means he has had to brave harsh winter conditions in the early weeks of the year, the Daily Post reports.

He told the paper: "I’ve got all the equipment and I know what I’m doing. To get to the summit I needed to use crampons and a lot of care.”

Those venturing out on the mountains in winter conditions may benefit from investing in items such as men's winter jackets or women's winter jackets as they take on the challenges it provides.

February's edition of Trail Magazine has recommended that walkers in Snowdonia attempt the feat of climbing all the national park's 3,000 ft peaks in two days rather than one, as a good test of winter mountain skills.
