    A tarn (or corrie loch) is a mountain lake or pool, according to Wikipedia :rolleyes:

    Don't be playing your body of water semantic games with me, laddie. Though it was another Welsh kingdom come to think of it.

    There’s also the fact that Snowdon’s shit. (As is scaffolding poke, tbf).

    If you’ve ever wanted to trudge up a motorway surrounded by 2bn ill prepared and mournful trumpets before QUEUEING to ascend the shitty cairn at the top, then Snowdon (or scared poke) are your mountains :thumbs: (or obvs, there’s always the FUCKIN TRAIN).

    I can’t help but regret that I didn’t attempt the nearly-as-big and entirely deserted whopper just to its east. Which was eyeing me up for the entirety of the (bland) ascent. And my gut instinct is that, in nearly every available circumstance, a country’s second highest peak is likely to make for a far more interesting walk than it’s highest.

    We did Cross Fell one New Years Day in the snow and that was great.

    Typical that the Welsh are complaining about this, when it's their fault

    Do you think the English want to be reminded that they have no mountains bigger than the Welsh one? Nope.

    It's Welsh nationalism, that's all.

    ABW :mad:

    You have observed that it is in Wales; there is no entanglement (at the macro scale).

    Suitability of metaphor = 0/10.

    Oh dear, a faux pas of massif proportions. What ever will I do?

    I think you'll find the mountain is marvellous, but that you dislike the people.

    Technically the South of England actually has two mountains. Arguably the same massif but two summits of mountain status nonetheless.

    Yep.

    The South of England.

    Snowdon in the, er, snow is a lot more interesting.
