London 2012: Olympic Torch Reaches Summit Of Snowdon (GALLERY)

GALLERY: Olympic Torch Reaches Snowdon

Sir Chris Bonington carried the Olympic Torch to the summit of Mount Snowdon on the 11th day of the relay ahead of London 2012.

However mountaineer Sir Chris, 77, only carried the Olympic torch a short distance to the summit today, since the flame travelled the rest of the journey up Wales' highest mountain via train.

The flame travelled in a miner's lantern on the Snowdon Mountain Railway before it was carried up to the top and lit 1,085 metres above sea level.

Enjoy the gallery of the latest day in the Torch relay...
