Five men from the Stockport area are to climb Snowdon for charity following the death of a friend on the mountain.
Stuart Tyrer died on April 10th and his friends are to respond by climbing the 3,560 ft peak on June 10th, raising money for two of his favoured charities - Mountain Rescue and Help for Heroes.
The trek will take place via the Llanberis Path, which takes a similar route up to the top as the Snowdon Mountain Railway.
A blog has been written by one of the participants and has revealed the group are well prepared for their trek, with walking boots
included in the list of items to wear or carry.
The Llanberis Path is one of the easier ways up the mountain, but walkers can take a variety of routes with varying levels of difficulty.
Crib Goch is the hardest, requiring an exposed scramble along the knife-edge ridge that tests both the technique and head for heights of anyone daring to take on the challenge.
