Can’t wait to find out . . .

The interest currently being shown in climbing the dizzy heights of Mount Snowdon and Pen y Fan bring some obvious problems – least among them being overflowing car parks and rubbish bins.

But what struck me about this difficulty was the thought of people queuing to have to climb a mountain. 

At the cinema, in the supermarket, waiting at the bus stop … there, I might expect to queue.  But in the vast open spaces of the countryside?  I’m not sure I can get my head around that. 

The Welsh Government are planning to spend £2m to try to improve the situation – an amount seemingly worth spending as visitors to the area bring a very welcome £69m of economic benefit annually to the Snowdon area alone.

I’m sure some serious head-scratching about this problem will bring about some wonderful problem-solving. And while we wait for that to happen, think on this: in 2018, volunteers removed 400 bags of litter from the mountain.

I wonder where the best problem-solving might come from?

I’m intrigued to find out.
