The Llanberis Pass (OC-189)

Llanberis, Snowdonia National Park, North Wales

Hilly - Loop - Trending

A long but comparatively easy climb through the Llanberis Pass, Official Climbs #189, riding southeast into the early morning sunrise. Return via Beddgelert, following the route of the Welsh Highland Railway as far as Waunfawr before the final climb back to your starting point. At the start of the ride there are glimpses of former slate quarries, relics of Wales' industrial past. Snowdon, Wales' highest peak, is always on your right on this clockwise loop through the practically deserted Snowdonia National Park in early Feb 2020.
