    It appears that Snowdon/Eryri/Yr Wyddfa is STILL simultaneously in England and in Wales, being as it is the highest peak in both of those fair countries according to nearly every description of it I read and hear (most recently on BBC R5 this am). Schrodinger's Mountain. It's a marvellous thing when you think about it. Is it unique? I don't know of any other mountains that manage this feat.

    Everest and K2, the two highest mountains above sea level on Earth, for starters.

    In fact the top 6 peaks are in two countries

    The Alps are in like... I dunno, loads of fucking countries. Stop stressing OP, it's obviously A Thing.

    I remember flying over the Alps on the way to Rome and being astonished they went on for so long. Had it in my head they were sort of one mountain in width in a very long line :facepalm:

    It is the highest mountain in the place known as England and Wales though.

    Better said as England or Wales, in a way, but that just makes it sound like you don’t know which it is in.

    Eryri/Yr Wyddfa is in Cymru, that's it

  10. :mad: It`s in Wales and it is NOT better in ANY way to say `England and Wales`.

    I love Snowdon I lived on it for a year.

    I'm really confused now. What has the Himalayan range got to do with Snowdon?

    Don't tell him, (Scafell) Pike.

    Maybe it's that Eryri/Yr Wyddfa is in Cymru, but Snowdon's in England-and-Wales?

    Scafell Pike is in England. Snowdon is mostly described as being the largest mountain in England and Wales. It's in Wales, not in England. Everyone following?

    Exactly my point. It's a stupid thing to say. Hence Schrodinger's Mountain.

    Or even better start with Wales, that being the place of Snowdon. But even then it sounds ridiculous

    Right now, yes.

    As in, sometimes described as being in 2 countries but actually only being in 1? :confused:

    Obviously, it's overweening English jealousy at the fact that Wales dares to have higher mountains than it's got.

    It's probably the largest mountain on the island of Britain south of the Great Glen if you want another random claim. And the south of Scotland used to be Welsh.

    Confused by OP/being tired. Thought you were referring to mountains counted as being in two countries.

    In that case I put forward Everest as a mountain the other way round - most people think it's in Nepal, I would guess, but it's also in China

    Yeah, here in Essex, anything higher than a speed bump is a source of wonder. A mountain would just blow our collective minds.
     
  28. We do like to mention things we have that the English don`t. :D But yer...I see the paradox in the statement.

    Come on, we know we are shit for mountains. Even the one area we have with a lot of the buggers is called the Lake District.
