Climber celebrates charity Snowdon success
Bookmark and Share
A mountain climber who put on his walking boots and climbed Snowdon every week in 2010 has been celebrating after successfully completing the challenge.

Andrew Craig from Caernarvon managed to scale the 3,560 ft highest summit of Wales 52 times to raise funds for breast cancer research, after the disease claimed the life of his son's godmother.

The idea was suggested by his wife and almost £15,000 has been raised over the course of the year, during which time Mr Craig has had to use different equipment for varying conditions, not least waterproofs and winter jackets for bad weather.

After Mr Craig's workmates set up the webpage for the challenge, his wife declared she had only been joking, but he went ahead anyway.

Those climbing Snowdon may enjoy a number of different routes to the summit, from the simple Llanberis Path that follows close to the Snowdon Mountaon Railway to the knife-edge Crib Goch.

Other ways up include the Pyg Track, the Watkin Path, the Snowdon Ranger Path and the Miner's Path.
