I'd been waiting for a perfect weather window for some months and only decided to head up to Snowdonia the night before! After a nighttime start, a 3 hr hike, on an icy track, I was rewarded with one of the best summit mornings I've experienced. The views stretched as far as the eye could see, there was a little cloud inversion and perfect, still conditions, as high pressure sat over North Wales. Crib Goch look very tempting but I listened to my common sense voice and rejoined the Pyg back.
