Rock Climbers in Snowdonia

Rock Climbers in Snowdonia

A group of rock climbers in Snowdonia, Wales, hauls their equipment to the base of a cliff.

I was disappointed in not being able to see Snowdon, the highest mountain in Wales at 1085 m (3560 ft), but we had a beautiful drive through the park. This was the most photogenic area, on a foggy morning, with a couple sheep farms, a bucolic stream running alongside the highway, and the rocky ground. Watching these climbers hike up to ascend the cliff face made me glad I’m not an adventure photographer – hauling a bunch of rope and carabiners and whatever else you need to climb, as well as cameras, would be a pain in the butt. Of course, the photography would be amazing, so there are tradeoffs.
