Pyg Track, Snowden, North Wales
The "Pyg Track", or "Pig Track" (both spellings may be encountered) is a track leading to the summit of Snowdon which leads from Pen-y-Pass. The track climbs over Bwlch y Moch on the eastern flanks of Crib Goch, before traversing that ridge's lower slopes. Above Glaslyn, it is joined by the Miners' Track for the zigzag climb to Bwlch Glas between Snowdon and Garnedd Ugain.
Lowry, Jan Gabrial and Tom Forman walked up the track to the summit of Snowdon from the Gorphwysfa Hotel on the morning of Sunday 1st October 1933.
