The Glasgow 2014 Queen's Baton Relay today reached the summit of Snowdon in Wales, where it was held aloft by London 2012 Paralympic discus champion Aled Davies.
Athletes from the local Eryri Harriers running club took the Baton up the mountain before it came back down on a train on what was the penultimate day of its Welsh tour.
It then visited the Isle of Anglesey, where it made a cameo television appearance on S4C drama Rownd a Rownd.
The Baton travelled to Caernarfon in the afternoon, where Team Sky general manager and former British Cycling performance director Sir David Brailsford took it on a cycle ride, before it went on a five-kilometre run from Plas Menai and appeared live on BBC's The One Show.
England is preparing to host the final international leg of the Queen's Baton Relay, which starts this Saturday (May 31) in Manchester with a celebration of the legacy of the 2002 Commonwealth Games in the city.
The England tour will cover 14 regions over two weeks and will include a quidditch match at Alnwick Castle, a boat ride around Bristol Harbourside, abseiling down the Orbit in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, a run along Lowestoft Beach and a visit to the Angel of the North.
It will also be held by a number of English stars, including up and coming BMX rider Valerie Zebrokova, who will be the first Batonbearer, double Olympic champion Dame Kelly Holmes, Sochi 2014 skeleton champion Lizzy Yarnold, Olympic champion runner Ann Brightwell, Commonwealth diving champion Pete Waterfield, Paralympic world record-holding powerlifter Ali Jawad and London Mayor Boris Johnson.
After taking in Congleton, Sheffield, Birmingham, Plymouth, Southampton, Kent, Oxford, Leicester, Hull and Leeds, Olympic champion triple jumper Jonathan Edwards will take the Baton from Commonwealth champion runner Brendan Foster on the Gateshead Millennium Bridge before a wrap party at Alnwick Castle concludes the England leg on June 13.
