A long walk with some technical terrain and parts with no footpath. Approx 14km with 1250m of ascent.

This is definitely one of the quieter parts of Snowdonia and enjoys fantastic views of Snowdon to the west, Tryfan to the east and the coastline to the north. 

We'll meet in Llanberis and take the bus up to Pen Y Pass. From here we'll ascend to Glyder Fawr (1001m) and follow the tops past Y Garn (947m) to reach Elider Fawr (924m) before descending back into Llanberis.

Please note that this event is subject to change / cancellation depending on weather conditions so please check your messages in the days before the event for any message from the event leader, who will keep you informed of any changes.

 

Difficulty: The first ascent is accross boggy ground then there is a steep scree section, there is no "path". The descent from Glyder Fawr is a steep scree slope. From there there is an obvious path to follow for most of the route.

Dogs: Encouraged! Most of the sheep were taken off the mountain yesterday (20th Sept) but there may be stragglers. Very likley to meet a herd of feral goats on the descent through the quarries. Bring a small shovel to bury poo or "stick and flick" into undergrowth.
