UK Expedition 2017 Snowdonia Traverse
Snowdonia Traverse 2017
If you think that you have to go abroad for an adventure think again. As well as running our long courses, holidays and tours, Contour also runs UK based expeditions, specifically for groups not exceeding 4 people, which take in some of the most remote and challenging environments to be found in the UK. 2013 saw us in Scotland (see gallery), 2015 saw us on Lundy, and 2016 saw us making three Snowdonia Traverses, so it's no surprise that 2017 will see us returning to North Wales to undertake the four day north east to south west traverse of the National Park taking in climbs and scrambles on the Carneddau, Glyderau, Snowdon and Craig yr Bera. Classic routes we plan to tackle are: Amphitheatre Buttress, Craig Yr Ysfa; Grooved Arete, East Face of Tryfan; East Gully Arete, Glyderau; Ridge Route, Lliwedd and Sentries Ridge, Craig yr Bera. We'll be walking between each climb and spend the evenings under canvas, bunkhouse or Youth Hostel to maintain that mountain feel. For further detail of dates, prices and availability select 'Choose a date' in the booking field. Places are limited to four people, so book early to ensure you don't miss out on a truly memorable climbing, walking & scrambling experience. Please see the scrambling section of our website for details of our other UK based adventure, The Cuillin Ridge Traverse.
