Guided hike across the Glyders

RSS Feed

As Dave mentioned in his blog post about Small Countries, there will be a guided hike across the Glyders on the 26th October, starting 10:30 at Ogwen Cottage. (Paid parking there or free parking along the road to the east)

The initial walk is open to all, and requires no more than trainers / sneakers and the usual rain jackets etc.; as we ascend the Devil’s Kitchen people can choose to drop out and continue around the lake.

After that it’s a rough scree walk to the top of Glyder Fawr – this portion requires proper waterproof mountain boots and probably gloves and headwear to be safe – then a glorious walk over the top to Glyder Fach but with a lot of large loose rocks so it will be slow going. After that we descend to the old Minder Road and track to Bwlch Tryfan and return.

Those interested in photos of the trail can find them on Dave’s Flickr – please get in touch with me Jules if you’d like to be included in the walk. Car-pooling from Caernarfon and/or Bangor may be arranged; again please send a note with details if you aren’t driving and would like to get a lift.
