10km with 1000m ascent, including some difficult sections of scrambling.

This is one of the events organised as part of Big Spring Camp 2022.

As part of the Big Spring Camp, this Grade 1 scramble leads OutdoorLads onto the summit of three of the Welsh 3000's (peaks over 3000ft, or 915m).

This challenging route is 10km long with just over 1000m total ascent and will involve a good level of fitness, some confidence climbing on rock, and a keen head for heights. If that sounds like you then this might be right up your alley . . . 

To start the route leads up the North Ridge of Tryfan (Grade 1 Scramble) to the summit of this impressive 'hedgehog looking mountain' at 917m. From here we then ascend up a second scramble to 994m and 1001m over the summits of Glyder Fach and Glyder Fawr before descending into the Devils Kitchen and returning to cars. This event will require a 25 minute drive from the camp, so volunteers to drive would be required. Please drop me a line after booking if you're willing to provide lifts to people. 

In good weather, the route will provide stunning views across Snowdonia, including over to Snowdon itself, however should the weather conditions be less favourable the route may need to be amended for safety reasons. Please check your messages on the ODL website on Thursday 2nd June after 5pm to confirm the walk will be taking place.
