Walking up Snowdon reminds me
of walking up Table Mountain
Snowdon mountain found in the Snowdonia National Park is the highest mountain in Wales. Having already climbed the highest mountains in Scotland and England(Ben Nevis and Scafell Pike) I have had my sights on Snowdon for some time. Finally I got there yesterday. But what really surprised me was the many similarities between Snowdon and Table Mountain.
Table Mountain is 1085 metres at its highest point. Have a look at how high Snowdon is.
Exactly the same! Another similarity is that the summit is perfectly attainable for anyone of moderate fitness. There are a number of routes up both mountains which are straight hiking trails. No ropes or even scrambling required.
But best of all is that both mountains offer a cheat for those unable to hike up! Table Mountain has the cable car. Snowdon has a train!
