The six of us decided to take the Pyg track up and the Miners track down. Four children (ages 9 to 15) and two adults both not having climbed for 20+ years. The route is well within the capabilities of most reasonably fit ( or not too unfit) people, but we were very tired by the end of it. Taking this route does mean that you start well over 1000 feet up, so less vertical distance to climb, and on the way back it is a very easy path for the last mile or so. We arrived at Pen y pass car park at 9.45 to find it full, so parked in the first lay-by down the road and caught the bus. It works out cheaper than paying for the car park! The bus service is very regular in the summer months and was still running when we returned gone 6pm. Café at the top reasonably priced and good quality.
