The man accused of driving a 4x4 up Snowdon twice is to go on trial in April, charged with dangerous driving.
Craig Williams from Gloucestershire was bailed at Caernarfon Crown Court on Friday (January 23rd), where he denied the charges.
The 39-year-old is accused of being responsible for the driving of the vehicle up the mountain on two occasions last year, with the first one seeing it stranded short of the summit and the second instance leading to the vehicle being parked next to the Hafod Eyriri summit cafe by the top station on the Snowdon Mountain Railway.
Police took the vehicle away and destroyed it, which may please those who like to use walking boots
to reach the top of Wales instead.
This year will offer the chance for walkers on the mountain to enjoy a rather more welcome visit by an unusual object, when the Olympic Flame is carried to the top of the 3,560 ft mountain in late May.
