A man accused of trying to climb Snowdon using a 4x4 instead of hiking boots
is facing a second charge for his actions, it has emerged.
Craig Williams was initially charged with illegally driving on moorland or common land, but now also faces a dangerous driving accusation.
Caernarfon magistrates revealed he is facing the extra charge when he appeared before them and Williams was released on unconditional bail until October 7th, having not been asked to enter a plea.
The court was told the 39-year-old had driven the Vauxhall Frontera to within a few hundred feet of the 3,560 ft summit.
People looking to climb the mountain in a challenging and adventurous way may wish to try the Crib Goch route, via the precipitous ridge of that name.
Standing 3,028 ft above Sea Level, it is one of three peaks in the Welsh 3,000-ers list on the Snowdon Massif, with the route from the ridge towards Snowdon itself passing over the other - the 3,495 ft top of Crib-y-Ddysgl.
