Crimea Pass


The Crimea Pass (Welsh: Bwlch y Gorddinan) is a mountain pass in north Wales, on the A470 road between Blaenau Ffestiniog and Dolwyddelan. At its highest point, it is 385 metres (1,263 ft) above sea level, and is sometimes closed in winter because of snow. At one time there was an inn at the summit of the pass, popularly known as "the Crimea". It takes its name from the Crimean War which was being fought about the time the road was opened, in 1854.
