The Glyders Via Bristly Ridge - Sep 09
 
couldnt have picked a better day for this the views were amazing

the Glyderau mountain range in Snowdonia is one of the rockiest places you'll find on the British Isles. Some of the unique rock formations on this route include the aptly named Cantillever Stone and the awesome Castell y Gwynt. The walk also inculdes a very tough scramble up one of Snowdonias most exciting ridges, Bristly Ridge. An alternative route means the ridge can be avoided by those less experienced or in bad weather. Starting from the shores of Llyn Ogwen in the huge glacial valley below you walk up to Llyn Bochlwyd then head up to Bwlch Tryfan before tackling the grade 1 scramble up Brislty Ridge. Once on the top Glyder Fach with its famous rock formations then Glyder Fawr are within easy reach before descending past Twll Du or The Devil's Kitchen to the wonderful glacial valley of Cwm Idwal.

Tryfan is one of my faves - try it in winter and it can be a bit of a beast under deep snow :). Great shots there too.
