Points of Interest/Notes on this walk:

There is a Snowdon Sherpa bus service that links all the main car parks and starting points for the main routes up Snowdon - including Pen y Pass - and the fare is cheaper than parking for the day at Pen y Pass- if you can find a space that is. You can buy tickets from the driver (Pen y Pass is pronounced 'Pen-uh-pass'). See The Snowdon Sherpa for details.
