NO MOUNTAIN HIGH ENOUGH FOR BYGONE INSTALLER
It seems that Craig Paulding from Lion Window Company in Kent was in the mood for a challenge when he decided to climb Mount Snowdon last weekend.
Snowdon is the highest mountain in England and Wales, at an impressive elevation of 1,085 metres and Craig had this to say about his adventure “I ascended via the south ridge, which was a moderate climb with a fair amount of exposure.
The descent was via the notorious ‘Crib ‘Goch’ and the Pyg Track, which translates as ‘Red Ridge’. This is a knife edge arête, and is graded as a Grade 1 scramble. Although it is not technically too difficult it involves sheer drops on either side of 800 feet or more.
This was indeed the hairiest moment of the climb. Luckily the weather was clear and dry, or else I might have been forced to choose a different route as poor visibility on the red ridge can obviously be very dangerous.
Still…. a nice achievement for me and spectacular views on route!
This is a stunning part of the UK. – who needs to go abroad when we have panoramic views like this”.
When Craig is not climbing mountains he is professionally installing Bygone Collection windows in the Deal, Canterbury and Kent area and has an impressive reputation for restoring windows and surrounds to their original detailing.
