Tryfan North Ridge Scramble

This is a route of contrasts. Start off by ascending the longest sustained scramble in the area (wth a down scramble to boot) before ending the day in a more sedate manner by stopping off at the Glyderau’s two main lakes of Llyn Bochlwyd and Llyn Idwal.

There’s only one way to enjoy a walk on a Bank Holiday. Well, ok, there’s 2 if you count don’t bother, but getting up just after dawn and being on the hill for 7am is the one i’d choose. Even the car park at Ogwen was empty! So this weekend, why not try and miss […]

Elidir Fawr and Marchlyn Circuit.

Elidir Fawr tends to elicit the memory in many either of the endless slog from Nant Peris, or of the scars of the Dinorwig quarries above Llanberis.  This is a route over the mountain’s quieter and arguably better side, though the mark of man is here as clear as elsewhere.

Glyderau from Deiniolen to Capel Curig

The classic traverse of the entire Glyder range from Deiniolen to Capel Curig. The only way to improve on this route is to nip up Tryfan on the way past, as you lose less than 100m descending to Bwlch Tryfan. On this occasion, we camped over half way at Llyn y Caseg Fraith which provides […]
