Crib Goch

Crib Goch is a knife-edged arête in the Snowdonia National Park. A path leads over the arête and three rock pinnacles to a grassy col at Bwlch Coch. This first part of the ridge is very exposed and serious, having resulted in several fatalities; the Snowdonia National Park Authority describe it as "not a mountain for the inexperienced". To avoid long queues on the ascent from the east, it is possible to ascend Crib Goch's North Ridge, which adjoins the main ridge. Climbing skills and equipment are recommended on the North Ridge.
