Crime, Crime, Crime

My climb up Snowdon!

This weekend I managed to make it to the top of the highest mountain in England and Wales! I can’t quite believe it myself but this weekend myself and 8 friends travelled to Snowdonia National park and climbed to the top of Snowdon via the Pyg track. It was not what I expected at all…
