...Robson faces a much colder challenge. He heads for Wales and Britain’s coldest lake, Llynn LLydaw, in the Snowdonia National Park.

The lake is the training camp for extreme cold water swimmer Lewis Pugh who swam at the North Pole in 2007 to highlight the effects of global warming. Robson is hoping that Lewis will be able to prepare him

Lewis tells Robson that the water in the lake at 7º is only 2º warmer than the waters the Titanic went down in...

Llydaw does not fish very well, perhaps as it is considered sterile, the blue colour of the water, akin to copper sulphate solution, because that is what it is - albeit in very dilute form, polluted by washings from the old copper mines that surround this, and Llyn Glaslyn slightly to the west, not marked as a fishery, but well worth a visit for the stunning views.

Zoom in on Google Earth for some 'Extreme Viewing'. The PYG and Miner's tracks, which crosses the lake causeway, both start at Pen-y-pass car park at 1,185' and show up well.
